Mike grew up in Hinsdale, Illinois and graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a degree in Post-Production: Editing, Film, and Video. Mike’s interest in video started at age eleven when he and his friends began to shoot comical skits. Soon after, Mike was drawn to editing and taught himself to edit these videos on early versions of digital editing systems. To this day, his passion for post-production shines through his work at Taste Media Group. Mike is also proficient in motion graphics, video compression, project management and leading client edit sessions at TMG’s office in Lincoln Park. Mike has also edited content for Motorola Solutions, Chicago Music Exchange and successful TV ads for MB Financial Bank.
In his free time, Mike enjoys playing guitar, drawing, and watching Chicago sports (except for White Sox).
