About Michael

Born and raised in Orange County, Michael Zschoche is no stranger to quality and style.  At the age of 22, he decided to pursue arts over academics when he left his psychology and social behavior program at UC Irvine to become part owner of Graphics Gallery on Balboa Island. Zschoche became the sole owner of the gallery six years after first applying there for a job.  At 28, Michael opened his second gallery (formerly known as MJW Fine Art) a few doors down. Michael Zschoche Gallery was different, featuring original works of art from nationally reputed artists. Soon after, Michael opened his third store, Zschoche, a lifestyle store carrying everything from vintage sunglasses to hand made pillows. In the process of branding his many companies, Michael was recognized in the community for his brochures & collateral and has since started his own branding & design firm, Nzsch. Through his many connections, Michael has designed and revamped small businesses, larger corporations, and retail stores of all sizes and budgets focusing on individuality and eclectic style. During these years, Michael was greatly involved in Vistage, an entrepreneur group that met once a month to discuss & learn about how to help CEO’s, business owners & senior executives become better leaders and help their business grow. Because of his entrepreneur attitude infused with art and style, Michael comes highly recommended as one of the top consultants in Orange County.
