Michael Naizu hails from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and spent his formative years in the suburb of Upper St. Clair. While Michael did not start acting until later in life, he was always an entertainer. Whether it was in his high school band with his brother John, or on the field as an athlete, he was constantly performing. During his junior year at Penn State University, he got his first taste of acting in a production of “Our Town” by Thornton Wilder. After graduation, Michael made his move to sunny Los Angeles to pursue a career in entertainment.
Along the way, he twice collaborated with director and actress, Frankie Ingrassia. On Ingrassia’s web series “Female Friendly”, Michael’s performance as the naïve yet earnest production assistant Brian was touted as “subtle, yet powerful and transcendent.” He also collaborated with Frankie on the horror comedy “Vampire Dad.” Michael co-starred on the hit TV series “Teachers” and is soon to star in an upcoming Freeform, Paramount Pilot “Girls Code” produced by Paul Feig and Kim Rosenstock. Even though Michael has spent a relatively short time in the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, he has already cemented himself as one of the top up and coming auteurs in the business.
