Michael Day is a Marine combat veteran of the Iraq War. He holds degrees from Columbia University and Northwestern University and recently published his first work of fiction, a collection of poetry, short stories, and vignettes entitled "I am the Title." Michael's entry into the world of art was a direct result of his experiences in Iraq. He began writing to cope with symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) and a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). His writing was noticed by members of the Warrior Writer community. Warrior Writers is a national non-for-profit based out of Philadelphia that creates a space for veterans to articulate and process their experiences inside and outside of war and service. Michael, realizing the utility of writing in processing combat experiences, helped establish Warrior Writers NYC, where he facilitated writing workshops in NYC, created and organized multimedia performances at NYC venues, performed at spoken word performances, and traveled around the UNited States hosting workshops. He acted as the official Warrior Writer NYC photographer. In early 2013 Michael met Minos Papas of Cyprian Films at an I Was There Film workshop at George Washington University. Together with three other veterans, and under the support and direction of Minos Papas, Michael acted in and co-produced a film short that follows the reuniting of three veterans affected with PTSD. Since that film, Michael has completed a internship at the Daily Show, acted in the feature "Behind The Mirror," and served as a production/camera assistant on a feature film, a RocketHub video, and a Roland commercial shoot. He continues to gain expertise as a writer, an Assistant Producer, and a camera assistant/2nd AC. Michael has also acted in a public service announcement and worked on multiple audio tracks as a spoken word performer. Read Less
