Michael Park is an American actor best known for his role as Detective Jack Snyder on the television soap opera As the World Turns, from 1997-2010.

Park garnered a Daytime Emmy Award-nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in 2007. In 2001, he was nominated for both a Daytime Emmy as a Supporting Actor and a Soap Opera Digest Award nomination, along with co-star Maura West, for Favorite Couple.

Park grew up with his brother and two sisters in Canandaigua, New York, with parents George and Rosemary. He attended Nazareth College, in Rochester, New York, and worked in construction during his summer vacations.

Despite not being a music or theatre major, he decided to change career paths when he continued to win the lead roles in school musical theatre productions.

After graduation, Park was acting in repertory theatre when he was cast as Raoul in the national tour of Phantom of the Opera.

Following the tour, he appeared in Hello Again, and understudied in the revival of Carousel, both at Manhattan's Lincoln Center, before making his Broadway debut in the original cast of Smokey Joe's Cafe.

After leaving the musical, Park appeared off-Broadway in Violet during which time he was cast on As the World Turns.

He appeared alongside Martin Short and Faith Prince in the Tony-nominated Broadway revival of Little Me and performed in City Center's Encores production of Bloomer Girl in March 2001.

Park is an avid softball player and golfer, who often tees off with his castmates.

Park and his wife, Laurie, a music therapist whom he met in college, currently live in New York State. They have three children, son Christopher Michael (born 1997), daughter Kathleen Rose (born 2000), and daughter Annabelle Jayne (born 2004).
