Mike (or to most, just “Nuget”) has recently decided to branch out on his own, taking along with him all the knowledge and experiences he's had for over 15 years, offering expertise in color grading, editorial finishing, and visual effects, and is ready for hire as an independent contractor.

Nuget was a member of the Technicolor-PostWorks team from 2005 - 2018. Recently, he has been applying those skills to television projects and documentaries, including the FX series The Americans, Netflix's docu-series Rotten, ABC drama Quantico, TV Land’s Younger, PBS documentary series Soundbreaking – Stories from the Cutting Edge of Recorded Music, and recent Academy Award Nominated short, Edith & Eddie.

Nuget began his career at Rhinoceros Editorial in 2003. Among his first credits was as assistant editor on Michael Moore’s ground-breaking documentary Fahrenheit 9/11. Since then, Mike has worked in virtually every picture genre – from commercials and promos, to reality and network television, to narrative and documentary films – and has honed a diverse skill set across multiple platforms, including DaVinci’s Resolve, Filmlight’s Baselight, AVID & some Autodesk Flame work. Mike’s versatility has secured him strong relationships with vendors around the globe, particularly AVID and Filmlight, for whom he has spearheaded several presentations, at both NAB & IBC, demonstrating workflows he helped create alongside these two industry leaders.

On the personal side of things, Mike loves to travel, literally flying around the world twice on trips to his heritage country of Thailand, and most recently traveling (or should say "eating") his way through Italy! Mike is also an avid snowboarder whose love for winter sports has taken him across the U.S., Europe, Canada, and beyond.

While some people think that moving between facility’s can be difficult and annoying, I very much welcome the opportunity to work at your facility and meet new people. Since becoming freelance less than a year ago, I have already worked in over a dozen different facility’s and have met some great people. But the great part is I also have the ability to work remotely from my professionally equipped home studio.
