Michael Jonathan Smith was born and raised on the East Coast (specifically West Hartford, Connecticut), and moved to Los Angeles for both his love of television and fear of hurricanes. He has written for FX, Disney XD, ScreenJunkies, Benderspink, Universal Cable Productions, and MTV. He has been featured on The Onion's AV Club and a few other non-made-up webseries sites. Michael also worked for Cirque du Soleil one summer, which completely killed any interest he had in running away with the circus. He lives with his internet famous wife Nan Lawson, and their two dumbass cats.

His beard is nice.
