Michael William Hogan was a corporate executive-type until one day he woke up and realized that he was working for all the wrong reasons. And all the wrong people.
Alarmed but enlightened, Michael thought about checking himself into one of those outrageously expensive facilities in the hills above Malibu but discovered they don't offer corporate executive-typectomies. Undeterred, he then bought a tattered volume of Mid-Life Crisis Management for Dummies at a used bookstore in Brentwood only to discover the chapter on transitioning from hell to heaven had been torn out. Left with only self-reliance, Michael managed to get into his own head, rewiring his grey matter to finally pursue what matters: happiness, creativity, screenwriting.
In the time since—and somehow without the help of artificial intelligence or an MFA in Writing for Screen & Television—multiple short and feature scripts magically appeared on Michael’s hard drive. He also produced and directed a handful of the short scripts.
Michael has won dozens of screenwriting competition awards and several festival awards for his produced shorts. That said, he’s well-grounded in the knowledge that awards are little more than mild validation that he kinda-sorta knows what he’s doing; and the true rewards will come from continued hard work and pursuit of script perfection.
