Biography:
From 2003 - 2007, Michael performed video game and anime music piano charity concerts under the stage name "Piano Squall" to raise money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, in support of a cure for the disease that took his grandmother's life. He toured Brazil as part of the orchestral game music concert series Video Games Live, with performances in Brasilia, Curitiba, and Rio de Janeiro. Michael released his debut charity album, entitled GAME, which became the first video game/anime piano solo album to be published by an independent musician.

In 2007, Michael founded VGMarket, which is today the largest provider of market research to the video game industry.

In 2013, Michael and Jason Hayes created Critical Hit, bringing live video game music concerts to gamers worldwide.
