Michel has a multicultural background: born in Johannesburg in 1968, he grew up between Holland and South Africa and has travelled extensively ever since. Originally pursuing a career in FMCG marketing, he soon found his real calling in journalism, becoming editor of quality Marbella-based magazines such as Villas &...Essential Marbella Magazine (www.essentialmagazine.com) and currently luxury international lifestyle magazine Caché+.
In addition to running his own design and publishing agency, Manifesto Design, Michel also contributes to local and international publications. While his background is in economics, he works together with highly respected photographers and writes on topics as diverse as travel, culture, history, people, art and artists, design, property, business and current affairs. A native English and Dutch speaker, he is fluent in both languages, and brings marketing savvy and writing skill together in his copywriting.
Although he specialises in writing to brief, Michel has built up a large stock of articles on a wide variety of topics.
