Director Biography - Michael Travers

I have been interested in film and science since childhood. As an undergraduate, I majored in chemistry, while at the same time shooting films whenever I got the chance. I earned a Ph.D. from the University of Colorado, Boulder then did post-doctoral research at the Center for Astrophysics at Harvard. After teaching for over a dozen years, I switched gears and began focusing on my other passion, filmmaking.

Technical aspects of filmmaking are quite similar to astrophysics. Both rely on light! The creative process is an exploration much like the search for scientific knowledge.

I have also always been a storyteller. As a child, I remember recounting to friends a film I had seen or event witnessed. All in tremendous detail, and it is this attention to detail that serves me well in the scientific world. Often, it is the little things that make the biggest impact!
