Mike has been writing professionally for roughly a decade now, getting his start in the journalism world at UCLA writing for The Daily Bruin. He took his love of film and the entertainment industry to the next level by writing for various outlets, such as Cracked, Ranker, and StudioBinder before landing at Looper. With in-depth articles, video essays, and Snapchat series, his work spans practically every medium, delivering practical information in a fun package every step of the way. He's also worked on his own projects, most notably sketch comedy for groups like Pregnantville and Top Story! Weekly. That's on top of writing several feature-length screenplays as well as numerous short films that have been screened at festivals.


Mike has a bachelor's degree in English from UCLA. He also got a minor in political science, but that usually doesn't come up as much.
