I'm Mike, a Pittsburgh based director of photography and co-founder of VINEGAR HILL and The New American Storytellers. I film commercials, and all kinds of films both long and short. I have a background in documentaries and have traveled to 35 countries around the world. Growing up, my father was a rocket scientist for NASA and my mother was a painter. For me, Cinematography is the vertex where my passion for art and science collide. I love technology, traveling, telling stories, and creating cinematic experiences.

When I'm not behind the camera you can find me at my piano, eating sushi, or playing Legos with my two daughters.


Let's collaborate, give me a shout:
