Hello Ladies & Germs!

My name is Michael Zayas. I was born in Puerto Rico, raised in Las Vegas, and live in Los Angeles.
I've been passionately editing since I was 13 years old, and got inspired to go into film when I watched Requiem For A Dream (I did so without my parents permission).
Ever since that moment my life has been centered around storytelling, editing, and making things. The feeling of making something from scratch whether that's an illustration, a movie, or a trailer has always inspired me to live a wonderful and magical life.

Let's collaborate and make some cool sh*t together!
