filmmaker

Mike began his filmmaking career in the mid-1980s following fluke guest host appearance on a local Christian music video TV show called Saltracks. What was intended as a one-off resulted in Mike being invited to co-host the show, and eventually take over as the show’s host and producer. Saltracks aired on the ACTS Television Network and earned the ACTS Award as Best Music Variety Show on the network. Mike later launched the nationally syndicated music video show, NightVision, before focusing on acting, directing, and producing live theatre. After moving to Music City USA, Mike continued writing for a number of television shows and launched his professional acting career. He formed Rule 14 Pictures as the production company for his first feature film, The Trouble With Rain, which he produced and directed.
