18 Mighty Mountain Warrior Members


MICHAEL CHIH MING HORNBUCKLE is a founding member of 18mmw. He received a degree in Computer Science to make his mother happy, then started acting. He left his job as college head of tech support to move to Los Angeles. Now he caters for a living. He believes if the catering doesn’t work out, he can always fall back on acting. Michael has appeared in “Day Standing on It’s Head” by Philip Kan Gotando and is a regular at the “Airplane: The Staged Reading” performance at the Tree People stage in Coldwater Canyon.  Michael recently appeared in “Stonerville,” Leslie Nielsen’s last movie and is the writer for Burnt Gum’s new webisode “The Ho’s of 7th Avenue.”  He also writes the "Louie" web series for Comedytime.tv.  In addition he has his own Youtube channel (youtube.com/hornbuck) and writes videos for the 18 Mighty Mountain Warrior channel (youtube.com/18mmw). Michael thanks Mo`olelo Theater and Pacific Arts Movement for having us!
