Personal
4WD'ing and photography are Michael's passion, and regularly undertakes freelance writing and photography projects for publications such as Adventure SUV and ADVDRVN. Michael considers himself a bit of a handyman, building decks, landscaping and fixing his cars - but these projects have recently taken a backeat with the arrival of his first child (and sleepless nights) in 2016 and into 2017

What makes him a different accountant
"My unique knowledge of the ATO's processes and legislative interpretation methods has helped clients manage their ATO relationships to achieve better results. I provide advice on debt management, objections, technical requests for penalty/interest remissions, and overall ATO strategies. I like coming up with outcomes that are legal, high quality and add value to the client's situation".
