About Michael

I am a multimedia journalist based in Vancouver. I hold a bachelors of science degree in biology and earned a masters degree in journalism from University of British Columbia. My work has appeared in National Observer, the Globe and Mail, the Tyee, Toronto Star, Vice, and on television for the Discovery Channel. I have always loved video production, I grew up with video, and my best teachers have been documentaries on television. I look to evoke all of the senses in my creations in order to immerse viewers completely in a new world.

    In this video, we learn about the clothing material known as Rayon, and how the production of this material is leading to the destruction of rain forests around the world. For this project, I was a one-man-team: I set up the interview and locations, set up the cameras for a two camera shoot, was the on-air host, script wrote, produced and edited.

  • Stanley Park Great Blue Herons

    • Production Company

    The great blue herons of Stanley Park are unique -- they are the only colony living in Metro Vancouver. And being so close to humans, cars, and construction means that special conservation measures are put in place to keep them safe.

  • The Evolution of Shark Teeth

    • Production Company

    When you think of sharks, one of the first things you imagine are their teeth. But just how did that beautiful smile evolve in the first place? In a video that I produced for Discovery Channel's "Shark Week", I aim to give an answer to that question.
