Mike has been performing, singing and playing music in the Puget Sound region for nearly twenty years. Active in theater arts and music from an early age, Mike has performed in California, Arizona, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, and has even done some pretty awesome karaoke in Japan, Australia and Italy (while traveling with a thirty-year career in the food industry).
Mike has been featured in a number of corporate films and videos as an on-camera actor and a voice-over artist. Mike's first love has always been musical theater. His favorite roles include Joe (Damn Yankees), Harold Hill (The Music Man), the Judge (Harry Tracy), Anatoly (Chess In Concert), Jackie (Billy Elliott In Concert), Dave (The Full Monty), and the Host (Side by Side by Sondheim).
In recent years, Mike has extended his reach by producing and directing several concert musicals, small-space theater music reviews, and dinner theater cabaret shows and has begun doing voice over work, writing covers for songs, and doing audio book narration in Seattle.
