Michael has recently begun his career and has been working on both Indigenous and historical sites in Victoria. Michael has undertaken the cataloguing of Indigenous artefact collections, as well as processing historical artefacts from a site in Bendigo. He is currently studying in his third year of his Bachelor of Archaeology degree at La Trobe University, with the desire to go further with his study in the field of architecture and built heritage. One of his most memorable archaeology experiences was going to Myanmar in 2019 on a sustainable archaeology and heritage management course. Michael's desire to study archaeology stemmed from watching documentaries in his youth and from his high school years where he wanted to become a historian, even starting his university studies as a history major before switching to an archaeology major.
