I am Michael Kortlander - an artist and natural born storyteller who has never subscribed to labels. I lead global ad campaigns. I write grants. I cover Beatles songs. I forage wild mushrooms. I split my time between Los Angeles and rural Ohio. I am currently working on a novel with my brother and a series of paintings that recall my family history – six generations of artists, bootleggers, and war heroes.

I have led creative teams across the globe and I'm always ready for the next adventure.
