MORE ABOUT MICHAEL
Whenever possible, Michael sheds his suit and laptop for well-used touring skis and mountain bikes to explore BC's alpine environment. Michael's philosophy on adventures is "the higher and the harder, the better", which we think shows up in his professional endeavours too. He tends to drag many friends and the occasional client along for the ride on these adventures. Michael is also passionate about photography (www.callofthewildphotos.com) and has contributed a number of photos to Iris Legal's website.
