Born in Nova Scotia, Michael spent much of his youth in Winnipeg before a love of sailing and his home province drew him back to the east coast. In 2009, he graduated from Nova Scotia Community College with a diploma in Mechanical Engineering Technology.
For the next eight years, he spent his time working and volunteering in different green projects and developments, including Transition Bay, the March Against Monsanto, and various food bank gardens.
In 2017, he moved to Bridgewater and currently is in the process of developing Natura, a self-sustainable community based upon permaculture, green technology and building techniques. Through various building projects, community programs and permaculture land developments, Michael hopes to present people with the opportunity to provide for themselves, nurture the land and grow together in a less invasive, more organic approach.
Michael is also developing Transition Bridge, a branch of the Transition Town grassroots movement. He hopes to create a community set on developing resilience to the challenges and opportunities of peak oil, climate change and the economic crisis.
Outside of business, Michael spends a lot of time with his two young children, both of whom he and his wife homeschool. He is an avid vegetable gardener, and has great ambitions of growing an orchard.
