Michael graduated from Trinity College, Cambridge in 2010, having spent four years as Organ Scholar under the direction of Stephen Layton. During his time there he was involved with the Choir's numerous international tours, concerts and recordings, including a month-long tour across Australia in September 2010.

Now based in London, Michael works as a conductor, accompanist and repetiteur. Founder and director of the Pinnacle Ensemble - a mixed-voice professional chamber choir incorporating instrumental players - Michael's recent projects have included a premiere devotional performance of Francis Grier's Sword in the Soul, which featured poet Geoffrey Hill and opera librettist Alice Goodman. Upcoming projects include a birdsong-themed concert as part of the City of London Festival in July and a Bach Cantatas tour in October. Michael is musical director of London-based GO Opera, and will be directing the upcoming performances of La Traviata, and is also a founding director of the Cambridge Bach Players.

He performs regularly as an accompanist to the country's leading singers and artist management companies (most recently Hazard Chase), and as a continuo player works with many of the leading instrumental groups (mostly recently the Britten Sinfonia).
