My Bio

My name is Mike Truong and I am a versatile creative storyteller with a decade of experience. I graduated from Oregon State University with a degree in Computer Science & Applied Biology. While attending university I fell in love with the ability to tell stories that bridge emotion and imagery. I became adept at both short form and long form content in technology, hospitality and entertainment within the last decade. With a keen eye to detail working with brands of the likes of Redbull, Patagonia and have gone on musical tours with Jack Harlow, Liv Warfield and The Chainsmokers. In 2023, I won a covenant James Beard Award in media against Bon Appétit and Top Chef Bravo. I am now wanting to take that passion and apply it into the mental health field. One of my largest ambitions is to create an open source library full of knowledge from different mental health experts to alleviate the access for those in marginalized communities.
