L. Michelle HayesL. Michelle Hayes

L. Michelle Hayes is a producer, innovator, educator and influencer. A 2001 graduate of Florida A&M University, for the past 13 years Hayes has worked on all sides of media, from anchoring/reporting national news to owning her own media company and online institute. In November 2013, Hayes was introduced to the Google Glass Explorer program, an opportunity for those interested in the next era of media technology to become a “beta tester” or “Google explorer” of the product. Since becoming an explorer, she has lectured on the future of wearable technology and created several dynamic social workshops to explore its everyday use. A rising filmmaker, she is also using the technology to help film her very first documentary “Life Content: Living What You Believe,” slated to debut in early 2015. When she’s not making what she likes to call “good media” or teaching others how to do it, she’s dedicating her time to doing social good, serving as a ministry media leader at her church, Higher Dimension Church Tallahassee, and for Life In The Now Ministries/Life In The Now TV.
