The Facts:
Michael Flocker grew up in Berlin, Germany until the age of nine when his family moved to Wilton, Ct. At the age of nineteen he moved to Manhattan where he quickly became immersed in the New York club scene and the world of fashion.
At twenty-two, he set off for Los Angeles where he appeared in a few commercials, did some bit parts on soaps and landed an occasional hand modeling job. He went on to write and direct the campy and twisted, low-budget film Hideous Puppets, which was a hit on the IFP Cinema Lounge circuit.
He eventually returned to New York, and it was there that he penned the New York Times best-seller The Metrosexual Guide to Style, which went on to be published in 22 countries. His subsequent books, The Hedonism Handbook and Death by PowerPoint, were also published internationally, and he contributed to several international newspapers and magazines including the London Sunday Times, The Guardian UK, Details, and Where Magazine.
Over the years, he has worked for several major media corporations and while working at NBC Universal, he was cast as a co-host of LX New York where he specialized in red carpet events, the arts, fashion, theater and celebrity interviews.
His newest project is his debut novel, The Sound of Falling Stars, which was published in the fall of 2016.
