Michael Vincent Girgenti was born in Chicago, Illinois, on April 4th, 1986. This renaissance man's first creative exploration was within the arts of music. Being influenced by his father Enzo who was a drummer, Michael began primarily focusing on music throughout his teens. During the pursuit of music, Michael later became involved in the realm of fashion. Luigi Barletta, a close friend on the east coast convinced Michael he had the high-end commercial look to become a high-profile model. Taking the suggestion seriously, after attending a random open call, Michael ended up signing a two-year modeling contract with one of the biggest modeling agencies in the world, "Elite Model Management".Shortly after his new found modeling deal and eagerness to maximize his full potential in a bigger entertainment city, Michael ended up "testing out" Los Angeles, California. Following his instincts while on the west coast, Michael's love for cinema grew deeper after experiencing an opportunity to perform as background talent, on a popular network television program. Through doing background work, Michael met a fellow aspiring filmmaker, Josh Webber. Since that day on set, Girgenti and Webber have teamed up to create and conquer many independent projects. Taking his new art expression to the next level, Michael began to study acting, and enrolled in a top acting school in Hollywood. Still heavily involved in the music, fashion, and film industry, Michael also has a strong strength in writing. With over thirty plus children's books published under his "Strawberry Pencil Magic" banner and growing, it is fair to say God's blessing of creativity flows through Mr. Girgenti. Michael is a grateful SAG-AFTRA member and plans to use his influence within the world to help lead people to Christ.
