With a background in film, Michael began in advertising, making commercials for radio and television, and winning a Clio Award, National Addy Award, New York Ad Club’s Andy Award, two National Emmy Finalists Awards, and the Bronze Lion at the Cannes Film Festival.

His popular sea-faring musical The Ark enjoyed a New York City debut in 2005.

Michael has also authored four books with accompanying CDs – Distant Serenade, Hold on the Light Will Come: And Other Lessons My Songs Have Taught Me, The Forgotten Carols, and most recently, From God’s Arms to My Arms to Yours.
