Micah is a writer, filmmaker, documentarian, photographer, and hamburger expert based in Los Angeles, California.
A Slavic literature major from Princeton University, Micah’s always been drawn to human stories of consequence and discovered his love for documentary while filming his thesis in St. Petersburg, Russia. Upon graduating, Micah went on to receive an M.F.A. in Narrative Film Directing with an emphasis on documentary storytelling.
Micah has been working in nonfiction filmmaking for over fifteen years, most recently with acclaimed filmmaker Matt Tyrnauer and Altimeter Films. He co-produced Tyrnauer’s Sundance documentary “Where’s My Roy Cohn?” and the Showtime series “The Reagans,” which together chronicle the rise of extreme conservatism in the United States. His latest production with director Tyrnauer is the Hulu documentary series “Victoria’s Secret: Angels and Demons”–an exploration of the historic collapse of the famous brand, and the dark ties between its billionaire owner and the notorious Jeffrey Epstein.
Micah complements Altimeter’s grand narrative productions with intimate character studies and has collaborated with acclaimed international video artist Nicole Miller on her award-winning explorations into the BIPOC experience in America “The Borrowers,” and “Believing is Seeing," for LACMA and the Clinton/Koenig Gallery. He is also currently producing a documentary on the individual impacts of climate change on people living on the sinking atolls of the Republic of Kiribati.
As an editor, Micah applies his experience as a documentary storyteller and interviewer to help students sculpt and amplify their personal stories and experiences. When he’s not writing, editing, or making movies, you can find Micah exploring the fascinating corners of the Southern California burger scene for the social media team The Burgerists.
