Michael dropped out of his London stockbroking job in 1972 in search of something more meaningful and drove overland to India looking for it.
The hashish in Afghanistan and the mushroom omelette in Bali tipped him upside down and gave him plenty to think about. He then spent ten years wandering the planet wondering what to do next as he looked for a like minded community, eventually finding it in Nimbin about thirty years ago.
He founded the Nimbin Museum and has been President of the HEMP Embassy for some time. He lives on a community, loves Nimbin, and strives to keep the dream alive of humans living harmoniously with each other and the Earth. He is also an active member of the 'Truth and Beauty' sub-committee.
