He started his professional life in the late 1990′s as an engineering tech in the San Francisco Bay Area working for high tech companies such as Cisco Systems and Tyan Computer. During this time he honed his skills as an audio engineer and sound editor for local bands and studios. In 2003 after working on his first production ‘Billabong Odyssey’ Michael realized his talents were better suited for audio full time and eventually moved to Los Angeles to focus on sound for picture.
