Michael Glass

Finance & Operations

Michael was born and raised in Sydney, Australia and has been fortunate enough to travel the world quite extensively. After a chance meeting with Lisette, the whirlwind romance led them both to move to the US where they've been living in San Francisco for over a decade.

With a background in the travel and tourism industry, he has launched and run multiple travel companies giving him the startup experience necessary to look at communications from a fresh perspective. He is the "numbers guy" behind the scenes at Gravitate and also the creative force responsible for building this website and many of the operating processes.

How did you get into PR?

Given that Lisette is my wife, I have always been in the background helping stay on top of invoicing, taxes, and all the tedious aspects of operating a business. As Gravitate has gone from strength to strength my role has also grown with it!

What type of technology excites you the most?

I'm a bit of a tech fanboy so my list would be quite long. I am definitely intrigued by the improvements in sustainable energy right now and looking forward to the day when batteries are compact and powerful enough that we see all forms of transport switch to electric.

Favorite hobbies or activities?

When I have the time you'll find me learning to paraglide, rock climbing, kayaking, hiking, or anything else outdoors. Combine any of these with my passion for travel and you've got a winner!

Favorite movie or book?

I think I've watched the Shawshank Redemption enough times to be able to recite.

Favorite food?

Probably Thai. Give me a spicy pad kra pow any day of the week.

Top destination you'd like to travel to?

This is a tough one as there are still so many on my list. If I had to choose just one it would likely be a choice between Madagascar and Sri Lanka right now.

Fun fact most people don't know about you?

Probably that I like to paint. I certainly wouldn't call it a hobby but there are a few of my paintings scattered around our house.
