About

Hi! I’m Miks. I’m a writer, researcher, and audio-maker working in Melbourne, Australia.

I also go by my actual name Michael, but Miks is how I’m most commonly known.

I’m a recent PhD graduate (I’m a doctor…but not that kind of doctor). My doctoral 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. 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, writing and making different audio-projects. Full details on my current projects found on the Audio tab above.

Have a look around and say g’day via the contact tab above.
