At Bosch Global Software, Michael led numerous ‘new age’ work-ways design and Global Mobility frameworks.

In the mid-1990s, he was dubbed by” The Sentinel” as the “Youngest Professional cartoonist of India”. Michael also plays the musical instrument harmonica in his spare moments and makes detailed portraits, sketches and caricatures of known personalities and friends. “This artistic trait of Michael,” to quote Jay Kamdar, CEO of MDC, “is one of the core reasons why our Maison De Couture leadership team chose Michael as our ‘natural ally.’”

He further reiterated “how many unique cultures are getting wiped out, and how critical it is for all of us to retain our cultures, ‘heritages’ and ‘unique identities’”.

Michael also spoke about his personal commitment “to foster the growth of young fashion designers, models, and aspiring artists across India.” The new collaboration, he said, “aims to showcase the next generation of Indian fashion and artistic visionaries’ creativity and craftsmanship on a global stage” by “offering them resources, mentorship, and exposure essential for their growth.” It will also “create a supportive ecosystem where young artists can thrive, innovate, gain recognition, elevate individual talents and also contribute to India’s broader cultural and artistic heritage, promoting it globally and ensuring that fresh, innovative voices are heard and “celebrated” in the world of fashion and art.”
