Michael De Sousa
I love a large tunnel slide. I love that feeling of shooting down the tunnel at a rapid pace, not really knowing where you are going, then shooting out the end and thinking ‘let’s do that again’
How long have you been at Forpark? Since 2002 (with a brief break in 2014)
What area of your state are you responsible for? Australia Wide
Fun facts about Michael: I have 3 kids under the age of 7, so we are always playing outside, at a playground or in the pool. If we are inside we are usually singing and dancing (or watching Bluey on ABC haha).
I also train Muay Thai Kickboxing which helps me keep in shape both physically and mentally.
I love cheese, chicken wings and craft beer.
Qualifications/ Degrees/ Certificates/ Participation trophies: Bachelor of Commerce – Major Management and Marketing
Favourite thing about working in the Playground Industry: Playgrounds are just such a fun product to work with. At every stage of the process, whether its customers, architects, designers or manufacturers, we are all working hard to create fun places where people can get together and enjoy each other’s company. I love the sense of contribution when I see people enjoying our playgrounds.
Favourite project: It’s an old one but one of my last major play projects as part of the WA sales and design team. Hyde Park in the Town of Vincent. Absolutely loved working on this one.
