Michael has been drawing comic book art since he was at least 15 and started doing some early professional work between 17 and 19. But, life as we know it can take you in different directions. He got distracted with alternate career moves, along with family building which he’ll never regret. So he went a different direction but throughout the years he would continue drawing, just not professionally. When he faced some major life stressors, his art-aka his first love-was there to keep him sane. But this time, he began to delve deeper into getting better at his craft and he began getting noticed for his talents. He was hired to do work for an indie publishing company and storyboarding for a developing TV series which steam rolled him into doing other professional work.
