About

Michelle Sison was born in England, where she lived for four years before her parents decided to move to New York. Her mother Annie was a registered nurse working in Manhattan, while her father Errol was a chef working at the Four Seasons in Upper East Side. After living in New York for seven years, her parents preferred warmer weather, so they decided to relocate to Beverly Hills.  

During Michelle’s more formative in years, she studied classical piano and competed in piano competitions since the age of 4. She was accepted to the Berklee College of Music, but after her mother’s passing, she decided to leave the classical world of piano and pursue a career in entertainment. 

Michelle has received her BA in Communications with a minor in advertising at California State University Dominguez Hills (CSUDH). While putting herself through college, she was working full-time at J. Walter Thompson, one of the top advertising agencies in the country, in their Talent Negotiations and Acquisitions department under the Senior Vice President, Farlan Myers.

Three years later, Michelle switched sides to work at some notable talent agencies. Her last position held was as the Business Affairs Manager at Special Artists Agency, a commercial talent agency. After spending about ten years in the industry, Michelle was longing to find something more creatively fulfilling and was determined to pursue a new career in interior design. She has recently completed her interior design degree at Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising this past September 2011. The last position she held was Project Manager at Brownstone Upholstery.
