I was born in 1950 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
It is still my Spiritual Geographical Center even though I have been living in New England now for over 50 years.
My model making skills are an accumulation of numerous and varied jobs I've had over the years. Everything from text book illustrator, wallpaper hanger and house painter, designer of museum displays, architectural model maker, and art director for retail stores.
My love of the 20th Century has been a constant inspiration for all of my work.

x-ray delta one says:
These 'diorama' shots are a world unto themselves.
I have never seen such a complete eye for detail and
a sense of realism."

Theresa Thompson says:
"Plan on spending a considerible amount of time when visiting and leave a trail of bread crumbs- One can get lost in his photostream... He provides viewers with a colorful vision of simpler times.
Michael is the most giving, amazingly talented model maker, photographer, artist, and friend. Often times flying under the radar because he refuses to toot his own horn. That's why I'm here... HONK, HONK!
Sit back...pour yourself a tall glass of sweet tea and prepare to have your socks knocked off."
