Bio: Mike Geier

Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, Mike Geier “MacGyver” (Owner/Producer) had a dream of making it big in Hollywood.  He headed west to pursue that dream.  He quickly learned that in order to get Hollywood’s attention, you must first invest everything you have in your project because there are no short cuts.  We here at The Hidden Studio apply that to every single thing we work on and it shows with our repeat clients, awards we received and credits we have under our belt in the last 10 years.  It’s a labor of love working on music, money and recognition is icing.

 Producer Mike Geier, aka “MacGyver” is fast earning a reputation as “the” guy to have around when time is running out and you can’t afford to fail.  Mike is armed with his handy Swiss Army knife of highly developed studio skills and an understanding that only an artist who’s been there could possess.  He has worked diligently to form friendships and strong working relationships in numerous areas of the entertainment industry.  A decade of intense, non-stop studio experience, coupled with a rich history as a multi-instrumentalist, has set him on the cutting edge of production as a true one stop shop.  Recently Mike has shifted focus from creating music for himself and other independents, to work with major companies and established artists.  With a fast growing list of credits, Mike continues to unlock doors and new opportunities.

When he is not working on production, he enjoys diving off of cliffs and raising his top score on Tetris.
