Mike Buffo

I am a Monterey Peninsula native bringing you over 10 years of entrepreneurial experience across diverse education and entertainment industries. I am a Certified Body/Mind Therapist, Transformational Leader, and Virtual Online Leader Trainer. I am the curriculum author of the "Digital Performing Arts," a one-year course curriculum for California public high-schools; an approved "f" course by the University of California. I have written the instruction method, objectives, learning outcomes, and assignment schedules that meet all the public education standards in 10 subjects from screenwriting to cinematography, to directing to editing, to acting to new subjects like Transmedia Communications. I am a working, full-time professional practicing all phases of stage and screen production including development, event coordination, production management, technical direction, stage management, camera operation, broadcasting, video editing, distribution, marketing, & advertising. My production company averages 40-50 productions/year (before COVID) with budgets ranging from in-kind to $200k. My Vimeo channel hosts 400+ professionally produced work sample videos. My clients rank among the most reputable businesses and cultural events in the Monterey Peninsula region & beyond. Overall, I'm a motivator and activator who uses my creative acumen in video production to successfully align my students' personal missions with their business goals.
