How many tax guys do you know who can work a follow spot? Michael spent many years in New York City working as a stage hand and as a lighting, scenery, and production designer. He was also instrumental in bringing the Big Top back to New York with the Big Apple Circus. In 1979, Michael moved to the Pacific Northwest to manage theatre for Seattle Community College before settling in Portland to produce shows through his own company, Michael Davidson Presents. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology from Pomona College and studied Stagecraft in the Master’s program at Carnegie Tech in Pittsburgh. Michael believes strongly in continuing education and is constantly enriching his broad knowledge base. He is a Licensed Tax Consultant and an Enrolled Agent, a Federal Tax Designation allowing him to represent clients with the Internal Revenue Service.
