Michael is a Queen’s Counsel, specialising in commercial disputes.
Michael served on the committee of the East Sandringham Junior Football Club (ESJFC) for a number of years, filling a variety of roles including Treasurer, and in more recent times Club Secretary before completing his term in late 2013. His own football background includes a number of years playing for Old Brighton Grammarians in the VAFA.
Michael’s early days on the committee at the ESJFC coincided with the debate about the various competing proposals for the future development of the then, MSJFL. His recollection of those times has instilled in him a strong belief in the importance of an independent, and professionally administered league.
His son currently plays at Hampton Rovers.
