Michael was the Editor of Homebuilding & Renovating magazine for ten years and currently works as Content Director for Centaur Home Interest Media and as a property development consultant and investor.
Alongside his media career Michael has worked on development projects ranging from extensions and renovations, barn and pub conversions, to building new country houses. He has self-built twice and is currently undertaking his third major home renovation project.
Michael has worked with NaCSBA since its foundation and has been closely involved in the development of key campaigns to change national planning policy and the taxation system to help rebalance the UK housebuilding industry.
He has experience negotiating at boardroom and ministerial level and is a tireless campaigner and enthusiast for self-build and custom build, with a passionate belief that everyone should have the opportunity to build their own home.
Michael says: “NaCSBA has a very important role to play in rebalancing housing provision in the UK and I would welcome the opportunity to help continue the excellent progress that has already been made. Self-build transformed my life opportunities, and I firmly believe it should be a choice available to the many and not just the few.”
