"Michael was a pleasure to work with. Communicated clearly. Set expectations for the work and exceeded the expectations he set. Would work with him again and recommend him."
"Great feedback, offered lots of value packed into the flat fee, fast turnaround!"

Yes, the top-selling "beer here" guy conquering thousands of stairs a night at Nassau Coliseum (4 Islander Stanley Cups), Jones Beach Concerts, Broome County Arena (Binghamton) and Madison Square Garden. The beginning of my entrepreneurialism. Worked hundreds of games, concerts, circuses, etc. Sound checks for rock idols sitting in the front row with 15,000 empty seats; priceless!
