Mike was born a human and raised in the Chicago suburbs. As a Jedi, he learned the true nature of the light and dark side of the force while studying cinematography at Columbia College Chicago. There, he learned to focus his force powers on 35mm and 16mm film and wield his light saber skills in the digital (RAW & HD) aspect of filmmaking. 

Based in L.A., Mike continues his quest for peace and brings balance to the force. As a cinematographer he shoots branded, commercial, and narrative content.  He enjoys exploring the galaxy with new friends.
