Before starting Time Out in Australia with co-founder Justin, Mike was working as a lawyer in the Middle East, doing a bunch of dirty jobs. Quite literally. He’d been knee deep advising the sponsors of a sewerage project in the little known emirate of Ajman, north of Dubai.
In the early days of the publishing venture he was instrumental in the corporate structuring and fundraising for Time Out Australia. These days he has primary responsibility for the commercial growth of the Time Out brand in Australia and New Zealand, new product development, and client services.
His love of fine liquor sees him propping up bars around the country most school nights. He’s also a judge for several hospitality industry awards throughout the year.
