Michael was inspired from a young age by swashbuckling adventurers like Robin Hood and Peter Pan, which led to a life-long love of costuming, performance, and the arts. He has appeared at the Colorado Renaissance Festival for numerous seasons as a character actor and musician, and currently serves as lead vocalist and fiddler for a local folk band. His favorite type of performance is “guerrilla theater” – when the audience is all around, and sometimes even part of the act. He loves bringing characters to life who can truly immerse others in their story, and bring them along on the adventure! Michael is very excited to be able to bring his unique take on some beloved characters to Wands and Wishes, and to share a little excitement with young swashbucklers everywhere!
