Brian Michaels started his creative path as an actor/dancer/musician/writer in his hometown of Detroit, Michigan. As a way to escape Detroit, Brian danced his way to the Las Vegas strip with a yearlong gig at a big-name hotel. Of course, Vegas felt like living on a desert island, so he soon split for Los Angeles. In LA he survived on monies from small TV roles and commercial work. Soon, an acting career was subsidized by bartending where he was inspired to write rock songs. He quickly published his songs and performed at nearly every club in town while attending college where he became a registered nurse, eventually working with some of the top plastic surgeons in the world.
For the past few years, Brian’s passion has been screenwriting, where he utilizes his love for creativity along with his life’s experiences. His first work “Warrior Warrior” a thirty-minute comedy pilot for cable, has been nominated numerous times as a finalist along with winning numerous awards including The Stage Thirty-Two Second Place for Comedy Writing and Winner for Best Pilot in the Big Apple Film Festival.
