Equal parts artist, educator and entertainer; Michael J Pearson has focused his energies towards the joys of education and creative storytelling (often melding the two together wherever possible). Michael has collaborated in award-winning theatrical productions and films across the globe, educates the next generation of artists as an occasional high school teacher, and has over ten years experience growing and directing youth camps from the ground up. Somewhere in there Michael also managed to fit in five years as an exotic animal handler where he performed live educational shows around the Greater Toronto Area under the monicker "Madagascar Mike". Today he continues to captivate the attention of audiences young and old, whether it be for the stage, camera, or classroom. Michael also offers a range of services within the creative and educational fields, of which you can explore further below.
