A blog about science and movies.
Hi! My name is Michael Wickham and this blog is about two of my favorite topics – science and movies.
The first is probably because of my dad, a really smart guy who always seems to know how everything works. I can remember as a kid coming home from school and telling him what I had learned – and every time he already knew it! He loved taking things apart and showing me the inner workings and from that I learned to keep asking questions about the world around me. That led me to college, where I received a BS in Physics, the ultimate discipline for asking “why?” of the Universe.
The second topic has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember, and I’m not quite sure where it came from. I just know I’ve always enjoyed watching movies and hoped that one day I could make them. So after college, I worked in the news department at a television station in Albany, NY as a videographer and editor, learning how to tell stories using moving pictures. On the side I made short films with my friends, through a group we started called Midas Touch Media. Today, I live in Los Angeles, working as a freelance videographer and making my dream of making movies a reality.
