Michael runs the Content organization at Fandom, responsible for all the original editorial and video production on the Fandom site, ScreenJunkies, Fandom Entertainment, and Fandom Games YouTube channels, as well as the occasional big project like our Galaxy Quest documentary, "Never Surrender".
Being born too early to play Ultima games or read fantasy novels professionally, Michael began his career making hairspray (for real) for two long years. After a stint in business school, Michael worked for ten years at Activision on everything from Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater to Call of Duty to Guitar Hero, specializing in using insights to develop & market new IP. In one of the gaming industry’s “sequels only” phases, Michael transitioned to digital media where he was a part of creating and building YouTube channels such as ScreenJunkies, Awe Me, Clevver, and Smosh Games. Michael has been a part of Fandom since ScreenJunkies was acquired in 2018 and leads all company content production efforts.
