Creative Director

Michael is an independent filmmaker based out of Austin, Texas. His methodical approach, creative problem-solving skills and commanding presence on and off set make him an asset to any film production.

Michael’s career, unbeknownst to him at the time, began after earning a degree in Construction Management from the University of Texas at San Antonio. He hungered for a creative outlet and instead pursued a job in marketing as a graphic designer and copywriter. A few years later, Michael’s desire for more creative freedom would drive him to follow his life-long passion for filmmaking.

Over the next 13 years, Michael would work on numerous award-winning films throughout the U.S. and abroad. He meticulously made his way up the various departments into production where he could apply the principles of his degree to his love of film. He now brings that breadth of knowledge and wealth of experience to the table making him an integral part of the CBF team. With a true passion for the filmmaking process, Michael directs production for Carbon Based Films.
