"Mike brought my film to life, scoring each scene with the right rhythm and mood it needed, knowing exactly when to use subtle music or intensify the sound a bit more to grasp the audience’s attention. I am honored to have had Mike score my film, and I hope to work with him again on something new in the future!"

-Giovanni Tartaglia, Writer/Director: A Life Within


"On The Message Mike really worked on understanding the feel of a family living in the North of England and the characters in the movie who had been born at the turn of the 20th century. I was very impressed that he listened to what I wanted and interpreted it so beautifully. His score really brought it to another level.

For Winter Lockdown Mike was struck by the theme of endlessly returning to a similar day as in the movie “Ground Hog Day” and having lived through that Lockdown himself, two themes popped into his head spontaneously. One of the themes represented mental heath/isolation and we had fun working together to get it just right. I suggested a theremin to represent the inner turmoil which he incorporated. I was impressed at how meticulously he wanted to put my vision out there but at the same time added layers of subtlety to describe the development of an emotion. He added a dramatic humanity which actually surprised me."

-Catherine Phillips, Writer/Director - The Message, Winter Lockdown

His score to the dramatic film A Life Within combined a dramatic sensibility with a touch of suspense.

As a longtime teammate of the composer Evan Evans, Mike contributed to over a dozen feature films and television projects, including The Perception featuring Eric Roberts, Senior Entourage starring Ed Asner, My Brother's Keeper" starring Joey Lawrence, and the Amazon mini-series Backlash.

Mike has performed extensively as a multi-instrumentalist, having played saxophone, flute, clarinet and bassoon with jazz ensembles, orchestras, musical theatre and rock groups.

"As music composer for Cyberia City, Mike was responsible for the audio feel of our first in-house title. He is extremely dependable and diligent. He takes feedback seriously and is not afraid to iterate and improve upon his work rapidly and precisely. His communication is excellent both with the audio and with the engineering teams.

Cyberia City's first title is very sound dependent since it is a core part of gameplay and the user experience. As such Mike formed a core part of the audio team on the project, contributing full scoring to the main levels in-game, as well as to the UI, cinematics and opening sequences."

-Emil Ivanov, Technical Director at Cyberia City
