about shay

Shay Michael is a screenwriter and comedian in LA ☀️🇺🇸

Getting to Hollywood normally involves taking a 4-hour flight from St. Louis, where I’m from. But I took the long route and spent 7 years as an international journalist in South Korea and Germany before arriving in California.

Now that I’m in LA, I’m taking UCLA’s TFT professional program in Writing for Television (comedy track) so that I can one day make it as a TV writer in Hollywood. 🎬
