Hi There! I’m Mike

I am a cinematographer/photographer based in Connecticut. Visual storytelling is a serious passion of mine were I’ve found great fulfillment in creating images that move people in positive ways.

My areas of creative focus are currently in aerial drone photography (FAA certified), weddings, commercials, and narrative film. I’ve had the great opportunity to work on many projects over my career with my work featured in notable television and print outlets such as ESPN, NESN, Connecticut Public Television (CPTV), WFSB, WTIC-TV (FOX61), The Norwich Bulletin, and The Willimantic Chronicle. I’ve been a part of and directed projects for Columbia University School of the Arts, and The University of Connecticut.

My interest in the visual arts sparked at early age with movies. Films captivated me by the ways they can transmit and transform ideas. They carry stories that stay with you, reveal new worlds, lift the soul, and show what the human spirit is capable of. It has become my favorite medium for storytelling.

I am always looking to take on different and exciting projects that explore the storytelling possibles in unique and creative ways.

If you are wondering what some of my favorite movies are (in no particular order) Back to the Future, Crimson Tide, Super 8, and Signs.
