Michael was born and raised in the southern region of the Netherlands. Back in 2004, chance led him into the retail side of the denim business and since then he has been hooked on indigo. Michael is a keen photographer with no less than two educations relating to photography under his belt and he hopes to make himself a career in this business. Along with his collection of denim books and magazines he also has stacks of sneakers and leather shoes at home. Michael’s favourite brand is Levi's Vintage Clothing and he has a hard time deciding between Tellason’s Ladbroke Grove and the 1954 501ZXX as to his favourite fit, yet it’s his Naked & Famous x Tenue de Nîmes and Left Vs. Right Evisu jeans that he’s most proud of.
