Who is Michael Clark?

I am a technology enthusiast who creates high quality products. After graduating in Computer Science from Queens’ College, Cambridge, I moved to Spain to develop the registration, chat and events for the Spanish social network Tuenti. Now I work for Spiral Software, developing the next generation of oil management software.

Cooking

Thanks to the Rouxbe Cooking School brilliant courses, I have progressed from vegetable pasta to ‘pan-fried rainbow trout with hasselback potatoes, diced steamed carrots and beurre blanc.’ It took dedication and commitment — 50 meals over a three month period.

Now I have graduated, I have started using these new skills to bring friends and family together. My next challenge is Rouxbe’s professional culinary course.

Sports

I keep fit with a mixture of cycling, running and gym but have reduced the intensity over the last year. I created a Strength Level Calculator in 2007 to create weight lifting scores for different bodyweights.

Personal bests: 40:04 10km run, 1:39 for 6min erg, 180kg deadlift, 120kg bench, 70kg barbell curl

Rowing was my primary sport at Cambridge. After a year of training I joined Queens’ M1 and together we achieved blades in Lent Bumps 2010, the highest accolade in Cambridge College Rowing.
