Born in 1971 Michael Bliss spent his childhood in Colorado. He realized his passion for art, poetry, film and photography during his teenage years. At age 24 he moved to Austin, Texas to study and make films. While having an art studio and working at the Artplex gallery he became friends with teachers, students, artists and filmmakers.
