About Me

Michael is a Detroit based actor, photographer and artist who searches for the unusual and absurd in everyday experience. His eclectic background in philosophy and political activism combined with a history of mental illness afford him a unique perspective of our world. He has worked on both sides of the camera's lens with many celebrity film directors, musicians, adult entertainers and countless flowers and insects. His acting received over 25 million views on YouTube in 2018(most notably for "The Russian Sleep Experiment" and "Revenge of the Mask"), and in 2019 he will appear in multiple feature films including "Wolf Hound" and "Aladdin 3477".

Michael is looking to network with Detroit area photographers, models, and other artists to create original, unique, bizarre, alternative and rebellious art.

"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars."-- Oscar Wilde

"Art is part of man's quest for grace; sometimes his ecstasy in partial success, sometimes his rage and agony at failure." --Gregory Bateson
