Michael Bush, owner and graphic designer
He wants to live in a world where the space time continuum stretches at nighttime to provide more sleeping hours, self-driving vehicles that can transform into planes, and our brains suddenly take the next evolutionary jump to solve quantum math equations faster than a super-computer.
As a graphic designer, he strongly believes communication is the de facto standard of effective design. This was the core principle taught at the University of Arizona, where he earned his diploma in Fine Arts, and a practice he implemented while completing the Design Communication Art program at UCLA extension. Recently, he's been applauded for the brilliant Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce logo design, which was spotlighted at the Santa Monica State of the City address.
Prior experience includes 15 years in the music industry as a music publisher. He managed and administered the copyrights owned by iconic artists and bands such as Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave, Billy Joel, James Taylor, Dolly Parton, Def Leppard, Chicago, CAKE, Will Smith, Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac, and many more.
When he's not working, you can find him around the house taking up projects too large to complete expeditiously or by himself, playing guitar wishing he was still in a band, and dedicating his time to his incredible family.
