At 14 years of age he attended work experience at a T.V./Video repair place near his home in Perth W.A., this led on to be 2 years part-time employment.
Michael completed Year 12, excelling in Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics.
At a statewide high-school competition he had taken out first place in Metal Construction with a go-kart he designed & built from scratch during Years 11 & 12.
Michael was serious about all of this and he had already setup a workshop at home to research many facets of electronics & acoustic propagation.
He commenced an Associate Diploma in Electronic Engineering, which within his time of study he began part-time work in Car Audio, where after finishing full-time studies, he began an apprenticeship in Electronic Servicing.
During this time he endured building sound systems in his cars & audio systems for home use.
Completing his apprenticeship at the end of 1998, he left there to compete on the east coast of Australia with his Mazda, resetting his national record to 157.4dB.
Then returning to Perth, Michael officially extended his passion to full-time business - Sounds Xplosive Audio.
Since then Michael has constantly advanced in knowledge & application.
He has extended the Australian Sound Pressure Level Records numerously, seeing this as a practical application of extreme Physics.
focus on honing the niche he's created is beyond a full-time love.
His passion has extended to an exclusive service, creating Audiophile Sound Quality in Exotic SuperCars.
