A former high school teacher, Mick has continued using the skills he has gained through his education background in teaching at The University of Sydney in the fields of anatomy, human biology and neurophysiology. More specifically, Mick has been a clinical supervisor in the Masters of Sports Physiotherapy programs at the University of Sydney and Latrobe University.

Mick is a keen golfer but wishes his skills matched his visions of being the next Major winner. He has a deep appreciation of good food, wine and beer, which does not seem to help his golfing ambitions. Maybe the Seniors Tour?
