Hi, My name is Mike Castoro. ((Just in case the dot-com domain didn't help identify myself. I gotta cover all the bases here!)). I am a musician, a singer/composer/performer with an education background. It had an “instrumental” part in my musical development as a cross-over artist ((and as a pun writer)).
As anyone who is in this field knows, you have to have a sense of humor! I feel my binge-watching of comedy and sci-fi shows have helped develop me into the person I am. As well as the love from my family ((Hi Mom 'n everyone!)). I'm somewhere in-between a nerd and a jokester. I am not afraid of meeting new people, performing in new settings, and helping other people learn the craft I take it seriously ((while not taking myself all that seriously)). I enjoyed all my experiences in performing choirs, a soloist traveling the world, along with debuting my compositions and songwriting throughout NYC and Long Island.
I absolutely love the creative side of writing as well. I am fortunate enough to be involved in writing of scripts/stories/librettos and also dabble in acting. Collaborating in these ventures is always an exciting way to explore new ideas and learn new things while having fun. I do pen a quick joke via Twitter as if it was my part time job. ((Ok, maybe like it's a semi-full time time job?)) I have had some of the best training with Met Opera veteran and SAG Award winning actor Anthony Laciura. I could not be any luckier to have worked with him and continue to sharpen my skills with him. I look forward to showing and sharing my love for the arts as often as I can ((and in as many places I haven't been kicked out of!)) Hope everyone enjoys what you may find on this site!
