In his current role as Director of Technology & Marketing at Key Code Media, Michael consults on and demonstrates workflows benefiting the post industry: acquisition, stereoscopy, storage, editorial, audio, finishing, and encoding. His background of integration and configuration of both hardware and software, coupled with his production experience, gives him a keen insight into the future of the post industry.
Michael has spent many years on the technical, consulting, and demonstration side of post production. He’s been involved in the design and build of hundreds of NLE systems and facilities, and consulted on even more. He’s also had the privilege of working on many new media and interactive media based projects, from web design to DVD to interactive kiosks. He’s been a keynote speaker at colleges, conventions, technology retreats and symposiums.
His post audio experience encompasses serving as a Dialogue Editor, SFX Editor, ADR Recordist & Editor, Re-Recording Mixer and Supervising Sound Editor on dozens of film, television and internet based projects.
He is currently a member of the MPSE (Motion Picture Sound Editors), an Apple Certified Trainer (Final Cut Pro – ACT FCP), an Avid Certified Support Representative (ACSR), and is constantly becoming certified on latest and greatest post technology has to offer.
Plus, he really, really, digs Post.

If you lived in Bizarro World.
Lucid Sound hit teh interwebs back in 1999, following several years on the now-defunct GeoCities. It was focused on my post production sound work. Several years later, it splintered, becoming Lucid: Sound and Lucid: Media, becoming a place for both my sound and new media work. Finally, 10 years after I started, I decided it was time to give my namesake a home, which is where you’re now.
I’ve always hand-coded my sites, but recently (January, ’09) realized that I just no longer have the time I feel this site deserves because it’s done manually. So I’ve moved to WordPress as my CMS. I feel like kind of a quitter, but a guy’s gotta sleep, ya know?
