Mike Mac is a Los Angeles based Music Producer/Songwriter
for Mactown Music Group. He grew up as an athlete with a huge passion
for basketball and music. Mike competed at a very high level and was
destined to retain a Division 1 Basketball scholarship.
His dreams of being a college athlete and NBA player came to a halt
when he became paralyzed January 13, 2003 from two torn ligaments and
a 6-inch blood clot pressing on his spinal cord from cervical (c7) to
thoracic (t3). He was unable to move from his chest down while
struggling to breathe at the young age of 15.
Following a six-hour surgery, he woke up still motionless. After being
transferred to a rehabilitation hospital, the Doctor told him he would
never walk again and would have to use a wheelchair for the rest of
his life. Following the bad news, Mike created the motto, “Can’t Stop
Me” (which is now tattooed on his right foot).
After being in the hospital for three months, he was able to walk out
on forearm crutches despite being told he would “never walk again”. He
went back to school and was Captain of the Varsity Basketball team
despite not being able to physically play. Although he was unable to
run, he was put in his last home game and shot two
throws showing that , “impossible is nothing”.
Following his senior basketball season he was able to walk unassisted
and graduated in the top of his high school class
earning a full ride
scholarship to the University of Southern California.
At USC, Mike
fell in love with writing music and music production.
Since the year 2005 he has been producing and writing songs for
artists in all genres of music for his production company Mactown
Music Group. Mike Mac has recently worked with JR Rotem, Sean
Kingston, Iyaz, Auburn and Livvi Franc. The future looks bright as he
continues to follow his motto "Can't Stop Me".
