A veteran in the voice acting industry for over 30 years and still going strong, Michael has been part of hundreds of projects in the field, ranging from dubbing anime, to recording for western animation, to voicing characters in video games. In addition Michael also works as a voice director and writer.

Michael’s most popular role in the retro realm is arguably that of Autobot Tracks on the original G1 Transformers cartoon!

 Introduced in season 2, Tracks with his sleek (flying!) car mode, warrior skills, and flamboyant and narcissistic personality, quickly made him a favorite among Transformer fans!

Michael was also voice of the quirky UFO character Cosmos on the show! Being one of the few Autobots able to fly into space, Cosmos would sometimes lament his lonely function on the team.

Michael also voiced Cross-Country on the original Marvel/Sunbow GI Joe cartoon. Usually a polite and jovial soldier, but don’t steal his tape deck or else you’ll see his angry side!!
