Michael Wood

Director & Producer


From the U.S. Marine Corps to every client's production; 

I am having so much fun at this intersection of technology and visual storytelling. 

❛❛Know your story, understand your audience, and don't wait till it's perfect

- Michael Wood

Born in Colorado, grew up in Louisiana, and landed in California, I served 15 years in the United States Marine Corps and around the world.  After returning from combat in Iraq and helping Marines transition from active duty I was working with wounded warriors learning the media arts as an employable skill set.  After experiencing the cathartic impact of the Visual Storytelling process, for me and wounded warriors, I pivoted and founded my production company. Never Forgotten Media brings vets on set and those with disables as a stepping stone in their journey while providing clients a services they have never experience before.

Besides Co-founding TEDxCSUSM, meeting my wife at the Writer's Guild of American West, and telling stories with technology; I do enjoy pony puppet shows with my three little princesses when I am not knee-deep in a livestream production or locked in the edit bay.
