Micheal began his career in 2002 with an Edmonton biopharmaceutical company analyzing samples from pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic studies for immunosuppressive drugs as a part of R&D and clinical trials. His work continued on to analytical chemistry where he developed and validated analytical methods utilizing LCMS and LCMSMS. Micheal moved west to the University of British Columbia in 2005 as a Research Scientist developing analytical methods for anti-fungal agents and anti-psychotic drugs and conducting pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamics studies. In 2007 Micheal joined Toxicology Services of the RCMP Forensic Science and Identification Service. His responsibilities as a forensic specialist include analyzing exhibits, instructing on breath testing courses, and providing expert evidence in provincial and superior courts throughout Canada. He has been designated an Analyst pursuant to Section 254 (1) of the Criminal Code of Canada. In 2010 Micheal joined the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) as a part-time instructor in the Forensic Science and Technology program instructing the Medico-Legal Aspects of Alcohol course. Micheal is a member of the Canadian Society of Forensic Science (CSFS) and the International Association for Chemical Testing (IACT). In 2016, Micheal was selected to be a member of the Alcohol Test Committee (ATC) of the CSFS providing scientific advice to the federal Department of Justice on matters related to impaired driving by alcohol. Micheal's research abstracts were accepted at the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) meetings in 2006 and 2007. He was the winner of the 2012 Canadian Society of Forensic Science Rita Charlebois Award for a member of the Society who, through his or her professional activities, demonstrates genuine leadership both within the Society and in the field of forensic alcohol or drug examinations in Canada and/or internationally.
