CREATION > CONSUMPTION

Hi. I’m Mykim.
I’m a full stack creator based in Boston, MA.          







          I’ve been producing content, digital products, and curating communities and experiences since 2004.









          
My first entrepreneurial venture, a custom made, skateboard design company was forged with my life long friend at the age of 17.  

When I’m not busy getting my hands dirty you can find me exploring digital privacy laws and cryptocurrency, in the ocean, or capturing the stories of the creative community in Boston.

HANDMADE: CONVERSATIONS
ABOUT MAKING THINGS


This series is a passion project near and dear to my heart. I've spent the last 2 years deep in a vertical video rabbit hole and this project was an attempt to apply what I've learned - while also turning it on its head.

My purpose with these are threefold - explore the power and intimacy of the vertical frame (only seeing detail, texture and hands instead of faces and places), create a different take on the infamous portrait genre by never seeing the maker in full themselves, and finally play with different formats for different aspect ratios and platforms - which you can find across the social sphere including everything from captions for the IGTV cut to retrofitting the vertical frames for 1:1 to create excerpts for LinkedIn.

The last thing that was extremely important to me in this project/process was to show that these are ultimately a conversation - it's me, my camera, a friend who I respect and a little rough around the edges that hopefully makes you feel like you're in it with me. Hope you can sink your eyes and ears into it and get pumped to make on your own as well.

WHAT’S EATING DAN?


This series is part of the first big push of original, digital first content for the 25 year old publisher - America’s Test Kitchen.

In each episode, Dan Souza, Editor in Chief of Cook’s Illustrated, takes viewers on a whirlwind tour of a staple food, revealing unexpected details that are both mind blowing and mouth watering.

I conceived and built the format, led the production team, and created ancillary extensions on Instagram TV and Facebook Watch.  This modern food explainer is driving community, utility and revenue on new platforms for a traditional, household name.
