Born into a musical family, Michael has picked up a number of creative skills over the years since his upbringing in Peoria, IL. His passions began at the age of two when he picked up the cello, and have ensued all the way through his recent studies at Northwestern University, where he earned a Masters in Music in Jazz Studies. Michael has managed to support himself solely off of his musical talents, and is known as one of those guys you can call upon to fill in for almost any instrument you need, (as well as his uncanny Chet Baker impersonation!)
ARTISTIC INFLUENCES: Stevie Wonder, The Beatles, Chet Baker, Louis Armstrong, Harry James
FUN FACT: Michael was a proud member of the All American College Band at Disneyland!
