Michael’s route to the world of drones came via the media business. He worked as a BBC producer until 2013 when he took up the post of Innovation Lead at BBC Wales, responsible for testing and introducing the latest technology on behalf of production teams. It was there that he founded BBC Wales’s in-house aerials team. As a remote pilot Michael has filmed for BBC News, BBC Breakfast, Coast, the ONE Show, Countryfile and numerous documentaries.
Michael now advises Consortiq’s media clients on drone training and operational matters as well as continuing to film for the BBC and independent production companies. He also remains active as a producer for BBC TV and Radio.
