Michael has a broadcast editing career spanning 16 years, and has worked on a variety of projects including documentaries, sitcoms, commercials and music videos.

He started out in the industry as a tape editor, and later transferred his skills to training after certifying as an Avid Certified Instructor in Hollywood in 2001.

In February 2004, Michael attended Train-the-Trainer at Apple, in Santa Monica, California where he attained Final Cut Pro Certified Pro and Final Cut Pro Certified Instructor status. He has re-certified his status as a Pro Apps Instructor with subsequent releases of FCP versions 5, 6 and 7, and currently facilitates training courses on both the Final Cut Pro and Avid editing platforms.

When time allows, Michael still undertakes freelance editing assignments. However, due to the nature of his business, he is more suited for short contracts and finishing, as well as post production supervision.
