Michael Slade

Michael was given the name “Northern Git” over a decade ago by a close friend, James Wilkinson upon his arrival to Australia from Yorkshire. The name originated based on Michael’s heritage in Northern England combined with ‘Get’ or ‘Git’ of a noble-born i.e. bastard. The name stuck, transforming an idea to what is now a reality.
