Born in Caracas, Venezuela and raised by a Miss Venezuela runner-up and a Sephardic Jewish banker; Michael 's comedy is a mix of ridiculously self-deprecating stories and hysterical, biographical accounts of an upbringing in a mixed cultured environment. Never really accepting a singular identity, he eventually came to grips with the fact that being mixed, and feeling out of place, is ok. He is a grad of SC Conservatory, creator of the "World Cup Comedy Tour, and co-founder of the sketch group "Recycled Babies". He has been seen at Sketchmelt, Big Pine Fest (where he won "Best Sketch Group"), The Comedy Central Stages, Seattle Sketchfest and more. Recycled Babies got their own series on Amazon Prime through Wow Now Productions. His stand up album It's Not What It Looks Like was released by Comedy Dynamics, and is a favorite on SiriusXM. Currently Michael produces the hit international comedy show, "Comedy In English", where he's had the pleasure of performing with distinguished domestic & international names in comedy. An avid soccer fanatic and coach for 17 years, Michael is the Producer of the wildly popular Pro GK (Goalkeeping) Academy and its podcast "Inside The 18". Recently he co-founded the new sports edutainment social media network "The Union"
