Mikey Kay is a Welshman based in Paris, having spent the previous six years based out of New York City.
‘I specialise in multimedia journalism and filmmaking, specifically across social impact stories as well as international conflict and risk-on zones. I worked across terrorism, national security and aviation for 20 years, as an assault helicopter pilot and strategic military planner in the British Military.
‘As a correspondent and filmmaker, I’ve covered in-depth stories on COVID-19, national security, refugees, medicine, mental health, politics, med-tech, conservation, aviation, religion, and energy, broadcast on the BBC, CNN, ABC News, MSNBC, National Geographic, History Channel, Travel Channel, Vogue, and GE Healthcare.’
Mikey’s brother Spencer is autistic and he created an amazing film documentary My Autistic Big Brother and Me.
Testimonial by Piers Morgan
‘My Autistic Big Brother and Me takes you on a rollercoaster ride of highs and lows as it explores the raw and challenging side of autism in adults. A brilliant and extremely personal documentary filmed over four years in the mountains of North Wales, that shines a light on the family and carers who make huge sacrifices to give a severely autistic man an unparalleled quality of life roaming the great outdoors, even to the detriment of their own.’
A big Thank you to Mikey and the autism community who have sent powerful messages of support for our charity antibullying campaign Give us a Break. Mikey took time out of his busy schedule for me whilst he is busy filming in Norway !!
