RESUME

about me

Vocal Range: Baritenor  |   Eye Color: Blue  

When he was young, Michael-Eoin wanted nothing more than to excel in football and martial arts, obtain a traditional degree, and join the United States Air Force. However, he had this hobby that brought him immense joy: Acting. As time went forward Michael-Eoin felt himself gravitate more and more toward the art of cinema, and further from his previous ambitions. Finally, during a long, and medically mandated, break from athletics; Michael-Eoin took time to reflect on what really mattered to him. Through this personal reflection and the encouragement of family and teachers, Michael-Eoin decided to pursue Acting with his whole self. 


He attended intensives such as Broadway Artists Alliance and Stagedoor Manor, while diving more intensely into his Acting process. Upon reaching the collegiate level, Michael-Eoin found himself fortunate enough to be admitted into the esteemed New York University Tisch School of the Arts’ Drama Program. He trained for two years in the Meisner Studio, and completed a year at Stonestreet Studios, honing in on the art of screen Acting. Michael-Eoin also attended other institutions to aid in his development as an artist; including The Lir National Academy of Dramatic Art, where he further developed his method of Acting. He also found himself admitted to a Semester Programme at the renowned  London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, developing skills in Classical Acting. 


In his career, Michael-Eoin hopes to create work that entertains and inspires people to dream and be the best version of themselves. He has a special interest in the possibility of telling authentic military stories, and hopes to one day create a foundation to aid returning soldiers suffering from PTSD with holistic support. Personally, Michael-Eoin loves to cook and explore the incredible world of wine. He hopes to continue to explore these side passions, potentially incorporating them into his work as an actor, and to never stop traveling.
