I'm Michael James Bell.

I'm an actor. I've lived and worked in New York City and Los Angeles.

I ran for Actors' Equity Council in 2020, and I'm currently running for Delegate.

I serve on the Board of Directors of The Center for Election Science, a nonpartisan nonprofit that advocates for voting reform.

For many years I paid the bills as a database engineer. I helped build great web apps for MapLight, a nonprofit watchdog that tracks the money in American politics.

My married name is Michael Ruvinsky.
