Michael lives in London most of the year and has for many years had a penchant for travelling around the world. He has been to many countries including Spain, France, Barbados, The Bahamas and the Dominican Republic to name a few.

Michael loves playing table tennis, poker and watching his team Arsenal, although lately that hasn't been so much of a pleasure as an endurance.
