My name is Michael. Like most kids, I started my childhood off in almost every sport. I soon realized my skill set was not geared for sports. I began exploring the arts.
I enrolled in the Globe Theatre School along with many other acting classes at the age of 9 and my passion for acting took root. I also became involved with Pro Scout, which lead me into a route of television and film acting. Selected acting credits include the 2014 Fusion Project: Touch (Globe Theatre) and Corner Gas. At 12 years old, I began a route in technical theatre, specifically, lighting. Selected lighting design credits include Wizard of Oz and Beauty and the Beast (Luther College, 2012-2014) and the University of Regina Presidents Dinner (2015). My knowledge of acting and technical theatre gave me an opportunity to become the first Luther student to direct a school One Act Play in the Spring of 2015.
At Luther, I serve on the SRC and planning committees for many school events. Outside of school, I am the President of my Church youth group, planning retreats and most recently, a brunch. I also am a Youth Ambassador of the Hellenic Greek Pavilion for Mosaic. I work as a busser at Golf’s Steak House and a lighting technician for Nite Staging and Sound when I am not involved with school and theatre.
Next year I plan to move into Electrical Engineering while keeping strong ties with my theatre and technical theatre passions.
