A multi-hyphenate in the truest sense of the term; MIKE BINDER (Writer, Director) is an award winning and renowned actor, writer, director and producer. A native of Detroit, Binder attended Camp Tamakwa as a child, which inspired his 1993 film Indian Summer, which he wrote and directed.

Previously, Binder served as the series creator, star, writer, producer, and one of many directors of the 20 episode HBO original series, "The Mind of the Married Man." Set in a Chicago newspaper, the show takes an honest look at love, life and sex in a modern marriage from the husband's point of view.

Having begun his career as a writer and stand-up comedian, Binder worked with Robin Williams, Richard Pryor and Jim Carrey. His first screenplay, Coupe de Ville caught the attention of Joe Roth who helmed the film for Universal, which soon led to another feature, Crossing the Bridge, which marked Binder's directorial debut.

Additionally, Binder wrote, directed and starred in Reign Over Me, with Adam Sandler and Jada Pinkett Smith; Mad About Town with Ben Affleck and Rebecca Romijn; The Upside of Anger with Kevin Costner, Joan Allen and Keri Russell; the indie feature The Search for John Gissing with Alan Rickman and Janeane Garofalo, which won the Critic's Choice Award at the Sarasota Film Festival. He also wrote, directed and starred in both Londinium with Stephen Fry and Colin Firth, and The Sex Monster, for which Binder received both the Best Film and Actor nods from the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen.

As an actor, Binder was featured in Steven Spielberg's Minority Report with Tom Cruise, and Rod Lurie's The Contender with Joan Allen, Gary Oldman, and Jeff Bridges. Recently, Binder appeared in Rebecca Miller's The Private Lives of Pippa Lee with Robin Wright Penn, Alan Arkin, and Julianne Moore.
