Michael profiled in the Long Beach Business Journal

The Long Beach Business Journal recently profiled (Oct 12-25 issue) twenty-four Long Beach, CA residents who are involved with the cultural arts. I was the only photographer profiled in this issue, although my profile is mixed with other visual artists; authors; musicians; poets; and even a fire dancer! Despite the many organizational efforts within the city over the years, the arts have never been quite recognized here as they are in Los Angeles even though there are a tremendous number of artists working within the city.

The profile seems a little awkwardly written to me, although one might blame a brief telephone interview and the author having no prior knowledge of the artist or their work. But I’m not complaining – most press is good press! Thank you for reading!

  1. Congratulations, Michael. Good news for the arts in Long Beach. Glad you were included. As a business journal they probably did not realize the profound truth they inadvertently brought out through juxtaposition: the parallel between the business of photography and fire dancing.
