Nearing the completion of his degree, Michael changed focus and commenced a mature aged apprenticeship as a carpenter and joiner in the early 1990’s. He worked as a builder and carpenter until 1996 when he left the industry in a hands-on capacity to pursue a more stable career at Glenorchy City Council, eventually working as an Assistant Building Surveyor. In 2000 Michael joined the Master Builders’ Association, where he has held a number of positions.
Michael holds a degree in Economics from the University of Tasmania, a Cert. III in Carpentry and Joinery, an Associate Diploma in Building Surveying and a Cert. IV in Workplace Assessment and Training.
