About Mike Platco

Mike Platco started telling stories on social media and made his dream career out of it. One of the first creators to make a name for himself on Snapchat, he’s since created a portfolio of snapsterpieces. From Snapchat storytelling to branded content, @mplatco is on the forefront of the Snapchat career space, working with brands like Disney and GrubHub. But this year he got a lot of press for his Snapchat recreations of films like Jurassic Park and Home Alone, collaborating for months with other Snapchatters like @emgarber, @littleylittley, and @salliasnap to bring the movies back to life, only to disappear again after 24 hours.
