Hi, I'm Mike. In West Philadelphia born and raised, on the playground is where I spent most of my days, chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool.... Ok, not really. Actually I was born and raised in Western Massachusetts, and spent most of my days filming my friends riding bikes and editing BMX videos. Fast forward 20 years and over 200 wedding films later, I'm now the lead cinematographer, editor, and artist for Rising Moon Films.

How did I get here? Well, I pursued my passion for filmmaking at Northern Illinois University where I earned my B.A. in Video Production and Media Studies in 2006. During that time, I was asked to film a friend's wedding, and they absolutely loved it. Another request came in, and another... and I thought, hmmm, why not use my experience, knowledge, and love of storytelling and take this show on the road? After several years of filming weddings in Chicago, I decided to leave on a quest for more sunny days and mountain views, and landed in Colorado. Shortly thereafter, Rising Moon Films was born.

I am passionate about collaborating with my clients to create a personalized, heart-felt, wedding film they will want to watch for years to come. Currently, I'm splitting my time between Colorado and Massachusetts, but am available for commissions worldwide.
