Our West Coast Executive Producer is the founding partner of Mophonics, opening the doors of our Venice CA studios in 2002 after 15 years in film, visual fx, radio, music journalism and supervision. Michael set up the team that still forms the operational backbone of Mophonics, and his A&R eye has spotted the talent that has formed Mophonics creative backbone over the last decade. It seems glib to say Michael loves music - loves listening, loves being involved in creating - and yet it is worth mentioning, as this passion is what drives everything he does. One of life’s irrepressible networkers, Michael has a mighty mental rolodex that gives him that magic knack of being able to connect disparate people who might just have convergent interests. Always looking to push Mophonics’ boundaries out beyond original composition, sound design and licensing, Michael is an ahead-of-the-game thinker who understands how harnessing digital technologies, and driving emerging social media relationships, can help us deliver a wide array of services and solutions to clients who want to use music more meaningfully to engage with their customers. Michael lives in Redondo Beach, CA with his wife and daughter, and is a keen surfer.
