Mike is a Toronto-based artist who finds himself involved in a wide palette of settings, both live and in the studio. His love for popular music forms has allowed him to enjoy the company of many wonderful artists and players. This has brought him all over North America and abroad performing with original artists and cover bands. Guitar is Mike’s main instrument but he continues to work professionally as a lead vocalist and bassist, running 3 of his own bands and playing in many others in the GTA. As a producer he continues to produce and write for artists that are attracted to Mike’s subtle but caring process. In 2013, Mike was fortunate to be hired to produce the award winning musical short film, “Sad Monster” by Kurt Dettbarn. The film won Best Super Short @ Comic Con, Best Short Film @ Atlanta Underground Film Festival, Best Music Video @ Red Dirt Film Festival … and many more that season. As a teacher Mike has always been involved with the community, currently backing up the East End Music Project in East York while sharing faculty at Metalworks Institute as a music instructor.
