about michael

My foundation as a director is built on my early life in music and my extensive experience as a documentary editor. I consider musicality and editorial storytelling among my most valuable skills.

The scope of my work has expanded since the success of my directorial debut, Jay-Z’s Fade To Black. Today, I specialize in unique scripted material like The Magic Of Heineken, large-scale event films like Rent: Filmed Live On Broadway, and stylized documentaries like Nicki Minaj: My Time Now.

I've directed all over the world including Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Australia, much of Europe, South America and all across North America. I truly enjoy the complexities of global production. More importantly I love collaborating with my fantastic crew, producing partners, various casts, and documentary subjects. Thank you, all.
