Michael has a background in commercial still photography and started directing in 2011. Since then he has worked with Guinness, Visa, Nike, and Audi to name but a few, on five different continents. Michael’s contemporary and intimate style of filmmaking combines a visceral, documentary look with a highly polished cinematic feel.
Michael is a dual citizen of Ireland and the US, but doesn’t believe in borders, and certainly not the walls that delineate them. He graduated in film and photography from The University of Texas in Austin, where he was also a member of the swim team. He has a love for exotic places, live music and unique, thoughtful people.
