Career Objectives:

Mikel's career objectives are to eventually be able to direct independent feature films with a high standard of quality, creativity, and marketability. To that end he is seeking funding for his first feature film. Always in search of what he calls "transcendent cinema," Mikel would like to help create films that explore the human condition, spirituality, and raise important questions. Mikel is also very interested in producing the work of new and talented filmmakers. In an effort to stay financially viable, he'd also like to work in the creation of high-end television and Internet commercials, and other creative video/film productions. Mikel continues to write, and hopes to sell some of his writing, both screenplays and prose.
