According to the bio on his website: "Mike learned to dive when he was fifteen, and following a degree in marine biology and qualifying as a diving instructor, he has run a dive school in London, led trips around the world, and worked extensively in the film and TV industry.
The roles have ranged from safety and co-ordinating on feature films, commercials, pop-promos and TV productions, to camera work on documentaries, news reports and other video projects.
He has also written and directed, You Only Breathe Twice, a documentary on the development of rebreathers for The Discovery Channel, as well as numerous training and promotional videos.
Many of these adventures are documented in the book, LIGHTS! CAMERA! SUB ACTION!
In parallel to the underwater work, he has always had a love of writing. This has led to a number of screenplays, interactive digital books and the John McCready series of novels.
Mike is currently working on further John McCready adventures, as well as developing a number of the screenplays for production."
