Michael loves to travel, having visited over 34 countries, including Cambodia, Morocco, China, India, Brazil, Ukraine and many others. Two highlights included doing a camel trek through the Sahara and visiting the Chernobyl nuclear reactor!
He doesn’t stop there, he has been skydiving, paragliding and piloted an aerobatic plane. In August 2016 Michael spoke at Tedx Darwin on overcoming failure, his talk gained widespread acclaim.
He spoke of his failure on Britain’s Got Talent, how he went on to share this story and has subsequently inspired thousands of people to not give up when they fail. Michael is a living example that even if you fail spectacularly you can still go on to be successful.
