Michael studied linguistics and English literature at the University of New South Wales in Sydney and then worked for a while as a computational linguist. Regrettably, he was corrupted by Australia’s most dangerous fauna—its philosophers—who encouraged him to think about how the world works and how it might work better for those who live in it. When he’s not philosophising, Michael enjoys film, board games, and football.
