About me
Michael spent over 10 years working in leadership positions for some of the world’s most respected British brands within the fashion, travel and retail industries - including i-D Magazine, Vice Media, Liberty London, Ted Baker and Virgin Atlantic. After a series of life changing events, Michael diverted from this career path to become a mental health and wellbeing advocate, promoting the importance and value of prioritising self-care, specifically within the creative and LGBTQ+ communities. He does this through his own channels, orchestrating relevant conversations and partnerships, as well as through Create Space, his retreat and workshop business.
