Michael's a Digital Fantasy and Sc-Fi Artist living in his native city of Seattle Washington. He's completely self taught and always learning. He draws freehand with pencil, pen and ink and occasionally charcoal, and enjoys digital art immensely. He uses a VisTablet Graphics tablet for hand painting.
Frank Frazetta,(1928-2010) was the 1st and foremost influential factor in both his life and his fantasy art back in the 70's, and is considered to be his mentor. He was devastated to learn of Frazettas passing, but has vowed to keep his memory alive by striving ever forward with his art.
Michael is a Dragon connoisseur and has quite a large collection of figurines and related articles adorning every corner of his home and aspect of his life. He's known as both Dragon and DragonMaster to family and friends.
Along with his overpowering love for Dragons, science fiction is right up there and he's proud to say that his hometown is also home to the Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame, which he's visited a few times. However, he does have a soft spot in his heart for the small Sci Fi Museum located in Old Sacramento, California. It houses both of the original (small and large) Time Machines from the 1960 movie , H.G. Wells - "The Time Machine", with Rod Taylor. One of his top 3 sci-fi movies.
He's also a proffessional amateur photographer and epic fantasy poet.
He loves the mountains, the ocean, driving, computers, reading and his Seattle Seahawks. He also cant live without his coffee, and has a large coffee mug attached to his left hand while not sleeping.
