Michael Avila has spent an inordinate amount of his life absorbing and exploring as much of the Pop Culture-verse as possible.
As a veteran TV producer, he’s covered everything from the Sundance Film Festival to the San Diego Comic Con. As a pop culture contributor for msnbc.com, mtv.com and newsarama.com, he’s managed not to embarrass himself in interviews with George Clooney, Will Ferrell, Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, Harrison Ford and other A-listers. Michael has also recently launched his own production company, AviLand Productions, specializing in broadcast and digital media content.
From the Shire to the Promised Land, Michael’s wide range of interests works well in tandem with his ADD personality. Besides his beloved Florida State Seminoles, he worships at the altar of Bruce Springsteen and as a lifelong comics fan, he hopes to convert all the world’s children into fanboys (or fangirls).
Michael lives in Manhattan with his wife Cindi, daughter Alexia, and their two dogs, Bernice & Serena.
