Born in Chicago, raised in Indianapolis, Michael Schmid has been involved in theatre for nearly two decades. Upon obtaining a Bachelors degree in Theatre & Drama from Indiana University in 1999, he moved to Austin, TX to gain experience working in their ever-thriving independent film community. It was there where, along with his co-founder Chad Foor, 4Lizard Productions was born. After work in over fifteen films, both acting and crew, Michael ventured back to Chicago in hopes to pursue more theatre work and test the waters of the Chicago Indy film market. Michael currently works a day job as a sales rep for Whirlpool Corporation, and loves it, but hopes to be able to leave that behind soon when 4Lizard Productions begins to run wild all over the windy city!
