Michael’s captivating cinematic style, knack for ambitious world-building and innate feel for intimate character moments have established him as one of the most in-demand directors in Australia and beyond. In the commercials space, he has explored the touching, hidden inner world of tech with Apple, brought a child’s Formula One fantasies to life with Honda and won a Cannes Lion Award for orchestrating a political revolution in a dystopian future with Taco Bell. Michael has been on equally unforgettable journeys with Audi, Ford, Visa, Xbox and Hyundai.

Michael’s critically acclaimed short film ‘Yardbird’ was nominated for the Palme d’Or at the prestigious 65th Cannes Film Festival and won the Jury Prize at the Tribeca Film Festival. His searing second short, ‘I’m On Fire’, examines family dysfunction in unflinching detail.
