Mike realised soon after leaving university that chemistry wasn’t the career for him. He’d used the early “World Wide Web” at uni and suggested to his boss at the time that her company needed a website – “It’s the future!”. She agreed. He picked up a copy of ‘HTML 2.0 in 24hrs’ and built his first commercial website.
That was over 20 years ago and Mike has loved growing with the web. Whether it’s designing or coding, he’s always had a keen interest in an accessible, semantic web and considers himself lucky to have worked on many incredible products with some of the most talented people in the industry.
Away from the web he grows fiery chillies, keeps native Australian bees and builds Lego with his kids.
