Michael Roque

Having grown up and in Southern California, Michael developed very early a passion for cinema, theater and the written word. He attended Pasadena City College from 2008 to 2011 and majored in theater technology. Being a people person and a huge fan of ever changing backdrops, naturally theater seemed like the perfect career for him. As college came to its end his interest in the theater began to dwindle and other passions began to take hold. Although his final year in school revolved around the stage, Michael practiced writing with his friends on the side. He alway had a love for literature and during college it grew out of control as he discovered more and more amazing authors. He began getting involved in the local poetry and literature communities in LA and was soon recognized as someone who had talent. When college came to an end Michael put himself full force into his writing. Through the years he managed to get short stories published in a number of local zines, yet with time all things changed. The desire to continue living as a starving artist waned and he knew he had to make some major changes. After years of using writing as a means to artistically express himself, he decided to take a more professional turn. For the past three years he has been delving into the world of content writing. Whether it be product descriptions, tourist info or covering recent events in the news, he has done it. He has also had a hand in translating and editing. One of the most excited aspects of this change is direction was seeing a different side to his long time passion. Michael never would have imagined that could have written something that wasn’t poetry or a short story, but alas he had successfully made the transition from art to professionalism. When he isn’t at the office, Michael is likely working on his latest art project, going on adventures with friends or planning my next trip abroad. Aside from that, he is also into volunteering. Recently, he has garnered a huge interest in cryptocurrencies, but not exactly from an investment standpoint. What he finds most interesting is seeing the slow transformation from one societal norm to the next. Most didn’t know about cryptocurrency five year ago and now it’s making headlines. In the next five years everyone is likely going to have a hand in it.
