With no art background, Michael left a banking career in 1980 at the age of 28. He begged for a job at a local "type house" where he trained in traditional darkroom techniques, Phototypositor, type specification/proofing and paste up. A year into the process he began to emulate the typeforms with a "calligraphy pen". In 1982 he left to freelance.
His current work includes logotype design, titling (for books, magazines and CD's), development of fonts for corporations, journal and book design.
