Having joined the team in May 2002 as a writer, Michael inherited the site from former Chief Justice Mike Jackson in January 2004, evolving Verdict from a fan site into a legitimate marketing partner for Hollywood studios, distributors, and PR agencies, due in large part to the finest collection of writers, editors, and film enthusiasts the world has ever seen. In 2006, Michael moved DVD Verdict from Chicago to Santa Monica, CA and heart of the entertainment industry. In addition to his editing and site management duties, Michael is also a professional actor, writer, medical school educator, and classically trained violinist/vocalist.
