Born and raised in Wagga Wagga, Michael moved to Randwick after completing his HSC to study Economics at the University of New South Wales. Following a career in financial markets and Information technology which saw him living and working across the globe, Michael sought a quieter life for his young family and relocated to Bathurst, where they followed their interests in small farming.
Michael and his wife have since homeschooled their 3 daughters during their primary school years over a 10 year period. He has been involved in community and sporting organisations, whilst consulting to both schools and NSW education authorities on home schooling and other educational issues.
Currently living in the Southern Highlands of NSW, Michael is committed to utilising his business, community and educational experience, strong family values, and principles shared with the Lib Dem Party, to bring integrity and accountability back to the political landscape of Australia.
Michael is the branch coordinator for the Liberal Democrats Southern Highlands (Bowral) branch.
