A current 15 year veteran Deputy Sheriff, Michael has been cosplaying since 2012 but the love for the

comic and video game genre has been in his heart since he was little as it shows when he creates and

puts his costumes on. Having many of his creations praised and displayed on numerous platforms,

Michael has judged multiple cosplay contests as well as hosted cosplay panels at many conventions

showcasing the positive, inspiring and supportive side of cosplay.

Also having a love for acting and stunt work, Michael has had the opportunity to work on different

Hollywood comic book movie productions. First the 2006 film 'spiderman 3. Having being bit by the

creative bug, that same year Michael auditioned for the reality show Who Wants To Be A SuperherO'

hosted by Stan Lee. Michael developed a character named Knightmage for the show and was made

a possible alternate for the broadcast. Michael would once again capture an opportunity in 2011 when

he was cast in the Hollywood blockbuster film The Avengers as well as in The Dark Knight Rises.

Most recently he was an extra in Captain America 2: Winter Soldier. Michael is also a member of the

independent production company Together Brother Productions which produced such fan films as

Clash in the Knight, The Legion of Injustice and most recently The Joe Files and Flash Fall. Michael and

Together Brothers are currently working on a documentary titled Cosplay is Colorblind. Other projects

include "Project: Lex" brought to you by Superhero Photography by Adam Jay as well as Fighters


Michael also is a spokes model for the independent comic company 'shot In The Dark Comics having

his likeness used for an upcoming original superhero comic character.

Genuinely loving to entertain, make a positive impact and bring smiles, Michael most often uses his

costuming by participating in many charitable events, benefits, parades, birthdays and hospital visits

to children. This has led him to becoming a member of esteemed costuming groups such as The

League of Heroes, The Heroes Alliance-Ohio Branch, East Coast Avengers and Superheroes to Kids in

OhiO'. Michael often works closely with local and national charity organizations as a sponsor, such

as The Make-A-Wish Foundation, Putting Downs First , Angels for Animals and many others. This has

led Michael to making the "Knightmage: Cosplay Against/Awareness Campaign". In 2014 Michael was

awarded the Presidential Volunteers Award for his charitable deeds through cosplaying.
