Originally from Newcastle, England, Michael was an avid contributor to the Silverstripe CMS open-source project and author of various open-source modules before making the move to New Zealand to take up a full-time position in the Silverstripe Operations team.
Since then he has made great contributions to the Cloudbusters team, and now works in the bespoke team, Quantum Dragons.
Michael has a well-rounded skillset with experience in backend and front-end development, working both on internal projects and client projects.
In his spare time, Michael is either in a pub or playing football. His favourite animal is the penguin and his favourite colour is (currently) orange.
