Hi! I’m Miks. I also go by my actual name Michael, but Miks is how I'm most commonly known. I’m a researcher, writer, editor and tutor (as well as a couple of extra little things…)

I’m a recent PhD graduate (I’m a Doctor…but not that kind of doctor). My research looked at the ways in which young musicians use music-making to tell and navigate stories of personal vulnerability. You can read it here if you’re at all keen. Ask me about it if you want! More details about my research interests can be found via the tabs above.

In addition to the academic side of things, I’ve also participated on the periphery of the Australian independent music media industry for over ten years. My current projects are a radio show Mikstape, and a podcast, Australian Music Diaries.

Have a look around and get in contact if you like via the contact tab above.
