Birth Name: Michael Bay
Birth Place: Los Angeles, California, USA
Born on Feb. 17, 1965 in Los Angeles, Bay was raised by his adoptive father, Jim, an accountant, and his adoptive mother, Harriet, a bookstore owner and former child psychiatrist. When he was just a kid, Bay began making 8mm shorts with his family's camera, and even got into some trouble after exploding a toy train with firecrackers, which set fire to the curtains and attracted fire trucks to his house. At 15, he scored an office internship at Lucasfilm and attempted to absorb whatever he could, especially the storyboards for "Raiders of the Lost Ark" (1981). Meanwhile, Bay attended the prestigious Crossroads High School in Santa Monica and later went to Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT...
