Mike holds a BSc (Hons) in Psychology and graduated from the University of Hull in 2012 with an MA in Psychological Research Methods. Following this, Mike spent a year working for the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services before deciding to pursue a career in market research.

Mike relocated to Leeds in 2014 to begin working for a commercial market research agency on their Quantitative Team. During his time there he gained a range of experience conducting projects for high profile clients across a variety of sectors including: Financial, Utilities, Retail, and Local government. Data protection was also a large part of Mike’s responsibilities and he worked as part of a small team to implement GDPR principles across the business.

After over five years in the market research industry, Mike moved to DJS Research to continue developing as a researcher, looking to build upon his quantitative experience while also further exploring the qualitative side of market research.

Outside of work, Mike is a big fan of gigs, collecting vinyl and likes to spend time outdoors running or wildlife watching.
