Michael was born at and grew up in the Findhorn Foundation. After high school he migrated to the US and spent a decade in Florida learning about himself and the world through the process of working in the prison system, selling vacuum cleaners door to door and running a wildly successful restaurant. Throughout it all, he kept looking for a sense of community and spiritual connection which, while he did find in flashes, eventually led him to realising that everything he was searching for was back home. Michael rejoined the Findhorn Foundation eighteen years ago and has participated in many facets of the organisation, from maintaining the beautiful buildings to managing the Communications team to focalising Experience Weeks. The sense of community and spiritual connection has been well and truly found and he is inspired by the positive transformation that he sees us helping to create in the world.
