User Bio

Michael Knudsen (preferred nickname MK) founded PopBytes in 2003–striking at the right time to enjoy the blogosphere before corporate giants started buying into the system. He currently lives in Los Angeles (Hollywood to be exact) with his husband Ivan, three dogs (Parker, Fidel, Candy), three cats (Mitzi, Mindy, Charlie), an Amazon parrot (Max), plus a few fancy goldfish!

Before taking on Los Angeles, Michael grew up on Long Island and lived in New York City from 1994 to 2001, where he attended Marymount Manhattan College for his undergrad degree in Communication Arts, then went on to receive his Masters in Media Studies at The New School.

Right now, he’s all about: obsessing over his vinyl record collection, attending concerts, watching quality TV (reality shows have left the building), keeping up with his top artists—Tori Amos, Marina and the Diamonds, Robyn, Indigo Girls, Björk, Madonna, Courtney Love—and is currently revamping PopBytes with a much stronger focus on what he loves best–MUSIC.
