Landing in Chicago right after college, Michael promised to move on once there was nothing left to learn. Twenty plus years later, he's barely scratched the surface but is having a blast working with great companies, production teams, and artists — at Lifeline, Theo Ubique, First Floor, Promethean, Davenports, to name just a few. He's had some dream roles, opened (and closed) his own company, and watched — and at times participated in the growth of a community that is somehow both constant and ever changing. His first outings with Strawdog were in Season 29 in Cymbeline and The Night Season. Joining this ensemble, to really connect closely with the audience through new and familiar stories, is and will be amazing. Off stage, you may find him baking, daydreaming, and juist generally trying to remain curious.
