Mikael M. Melo
From a very young age, Mikael has had an extreme fascination for all forms of media, communication, and the people around him. Having been raised by two Portuguese immigrants, he was constantly surrounded and influenced by telenovelas. Mikael can vividly remember falling in love with how so much emotion could be drawn out of a person by simply watching a screen. His love for content creation and storytelling alongside the tie it has to people’s emotions grew with time as he began to take interest in the entertainment industry.
Mikael currently resides in Toronto, Ontario where he graduated from Ryerson University in the Radio and Television Arts: Media Production program, with a minor in Professional Communication. He is a host, producer, writer & social media strategist. Mikael has worked with many companies such as BuzzFeed, etalk - Canada’s Most-Watched Entertainment Show, ScreenRant, The Cannes Film Festival, The Feldman Agency, iHeartRadio, CF Toronto Eaton Centre, YouTube’s Buffer Festival, among others.
As an award-winning creator, Mikael enjoys making the type of content that he wished he had growing up. Whether that be topics on body positivity, LGBTQ+ issues, self-love, popular culture, what’s trending, Mikael tries to take on projects that speak to him personally. He believes in the importance of creating media that is authentic and resonates with people, just like any good telenovela.
