Mykel began his TV career quite by accident. He started a Medical company to work in War Zones after Desert Storm. The work was intense, so he began a tourism company for his team to get down time working in Costa Rica running children's programs. That's how MTV's Road Rules Central America found Specops and asked Mykel to help develop the program for their season finale. Hawke ended up representing SpecOps in a dual role as a bad guy and the good guy on MTV Road Rules in 1998. He then did some consulting for Danish TV in 1999, Boot Camp in 2000, and Fear Factor in 2001. After Mykel's first TV appearance, he worked on numerous productions as set medic, security, translator, and producer.
He was mobilized for two years after 9/11. Between 2004-2005 he appeared as a subject matter expert in survival, warfare, leadership, medicine, and special operations for TV shows such as Tactical to Practical, Healthcops, Britain's Worst Boss, and Forever Eden. He appeared in the 2006 movie Dirty Sanchez as himself. In 2006, he also filmed an episode of the Discovery Channel's I Shouldn't Be Alive: Science of Survival in which he taught survival in the Amazon jungle.
In 2009, Hawke was involved with a new reality series about survival for Discovery released that spring. Mykel was on the Travel Channel's Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern in June, in which Andrew learned to survive and hunt for his own food in the Mexican jungle.
