This is a great place to add a tagline.
I'm Mike. That's me with Jimmy Fallon, we were shooting a spot for NBC. Before pivoting to marketing, I spent almost a decade as a video journalist in Chicago. I also taught broadcast journalism at Northwestern University.
These days I'm a Creative Director and Executive Producer for Amazon Photos. I own end-to-end digital content vision, strategy, growth, and execution of our owned and organic social channels.
In addition to Amazon. I produce, capture and direct Playstation trailers. I also created the Magbelt, it's a a magnetic nylon hiking belt.
When I'm not working. I spend my time with Fabio and Rufio (my two dogs) and my awesome wife. Fabio is the happy dope eating the birthday cake in the photo above.
