RECOMMENDATIONS


Michael is a highly talented artist and an all around great person to work with. I managed Michael on multiple projects during his time at Facebook. Michael’s strengths are in conceptualizing and producing high quality character and environment art - but he also has a good product sense and cares deeply about the people problems he is trying to solve. I look forward to working with Michael again soon!

Michael is organized yet flexible, talented yet humble, and is an absolute pleasure to work with. He is well versed in a wide variety of illustration and design techniques that range from traditional media to digital 2D and 3D, and has the versatility to fit in a variety of workflows. I admire how he is constantly working on developing his skills and is constantly exploring new techniques, which keep his ideas fresh and unique. In addition to being a great resource to any company, he is a very delightful person to be around. He is a great find.
