Home town boy
Born and raised in the small rural town of Manaia in South Taranaki, Michael has fingers in many pies yet hasnt moved too far from home base.
With experience as a baker, secondary teacher, commercial nurseryman and holding qualifications in Management and Tourism Michael can turn his hand to most things. He is a pasionate yet practical kiwi bloke who gets things done, tells a good yarn and has fun with food.
Currently he shares his time between making televion, his duties as a District Concillor, community activist, organic tutor, his various acting assignments and being involved in the lives of his three adult children.
There are always a great many projects on the go in Michael's life. Currently he is developing a new range of organic beverages "Hillbilly Cider" with partners and doing up his beloved K Bedford when time permits.
