Hi! I’m Michael

I’m an architect and coach. I help architects rethink their practice and support them as they uncover better ways to work. I’ve worked in architecture for over 25 years, and I ran my own practice for 14 years. I understand architectural practice from the inside out. Fun Fact: my NSW architect’s registration is #10 007 and I have a license to skill.

I believe improving practice takes asking hard questions and deep listening.

What have you tried?

We avoid experimenting to escape failing. In praise of experimenting, failing, learning and iterating. What to do and how to do it.

The art of setting boundaries

The boundaries of your architectural practice define your priorities. Establishing limits, and what you will and won’t accept.

A very useful newsletter

It’s so useful it’s called a useletter. The unmeasured useletter goes out every fortnight and includes bite-sized nuggets of wisdom, ideas and learning prompts for you to use in your practice.

It does not include: promotional material, recycled content or wordy essays. Your inbox is safe with me.
