Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, and currently based in both Los Angeles and Las Vegas, Michael is a Production Sound Mixer with over 20 years of experience. He began as a musician and recordist in his teens, simultaneously working with web and video production media. He formally trained with audio engineer and professors John Barsotti and Jeff Jacoby at San Francisco State University in the Broadcast Communications program (BECA). After earning his Bachelor’s Degree, he spent his twenties in San Francisco in an amalgamation of music creation, sound design, live sound, studio recording and location sound mixing. In 2015 he shifted his energy entirely toward film and television production sound, with new beginnings in Los Angeles. He has since expanded with a second home base of operations in Las Vegas, serving both cities as a local, but always prepared to travel.
