Mike is an Emmy award winning aerial drone cinematographer.

Works featured in film and television on Connecticut Public Television (CPTV), Channel 3 WFSB, ESPN, and Fox 61 WTIC- TV. 


I’ve been working with Mike for a few years and am fully confident and trusting in his process, both logistically and creatively. When working with Mike on drone specific projects he is extremely detailed and thorough when researching each location, talking to the appropriate personnel and following the correct procedure in making sure we are operating in a safe manor. Because of his logistical thoroughness, his creativity flourishes. It’s reached a point where I can comfortably give Mike a project knowing he will complete it from start to finish and deliver a product that is visually stunning!
