While living in Brooklyn, Michael began the emerging artist collective, 4EmArt and became a member of the Open Ground Gallery in Williamsburg.  He also worked for the non-profit, art education organization Studio in a School and organized numerous exhibitions promoting other emerging artists living and working in NYC. Additionally, Michael was a founding member of  the Brooklyn-based collaborative art team, D.e.M.O. that created multi-media room installations from 2004-2005.

In 2005, Michael received a scholarship to attend the Vermont Studio Center and went on to become an artist-in-residence at the nomination-only Acadia Summer Art Program (ASAP) in Bar Harbor, Maine.  He moved back to the LA area soon thereafter where he joined the artist collective Art Studio C in Highland Park until 2006.  Michael currently lives and works in downtown Los Angeles.
