After a lost decade working as a film editor in a network of darkened, airless caves, Mike Schulte left the misanthropic isolation of Hollywood post-production for the grandeur and acclaim of freelance journalism.

Schulte kicked off his shorts and cannonballed into the press pool, covering economics, local politics and design for The Architect’s Newspaper. He also began writing motorcycle reviews and travel features for The Robb Report, later serving as Editor-At-Large for Ultimate Motorcycling Magazine, despite the fact that he hadn’t been on one of the goddamn things since he blew the head gasket on David Stancil’s dirt bike when he was 15.

Schulte is a regular contributor to Draft Magazine, covering the L.A.  food and beer scene. He has also written for the International Caterers Association, Destination Weddings & Honeymoons and blogged for Warner Bros. and HalogenTV, among others.

Schulte acknowledges the superstitious nature of his German heritage by composing the entirety of his output in the same unlaundered crimson bathrobe. In his spare time he cares for six rescue dogs and two retired death metal roadies.


Some Kind Words:

“Jenny and I would like to compliment you on what we thought was a really wonderful article about our work. The piece has been written about a few times now, but none have managed to say it as well as you have. We felt that it really written from an architect’s perspective, with just the right balance of poetic and intellectual language.

Thank you again on a great story. We hope to hear more from you in the future!”

“I just read the article in Ultimate Motorcycling. That may be my favorite article ever written on Big Dog. It hits both the bike features and the company strategy very well – is written in an articulate manner and employs great photography. I need multiple copies”
