Michael's passion for communications started in school with political journalism and activism for environmental NGOs. After graduating from university, he moved to Berlin to dive into the dynamic world of startups. What followed was a period of industry-hopping, including successful tenures in e-commerce and fashion. But it wasn’t until discovering blockchain that Michael knew he found an industry to call home. At Lisk, Michael is most excited about driving progress in public relations and social media, as well as building relationships with influencers across various areas of interest. He is a huge fan of Japanese author Haruki Murakami - he’s read at least seven books of his. Michael holds a Bachelor of Social Sciences in Politics from the University of Glasgow.
