Mike left university in 1973 with a first class physics degree and a private pilot’s licence. After 8 years in various research roles, Mike joined Shell in 1981.

Dear Mike

I have it on good authority that, now that you've created your profile on the main web page, you can simply go to 'Community/Writers' Group' and register to join. Please give it a try, and let me know if you're still having problems. If so, we'll try another tack. Great pic and profile, by the way! Best wishes. Bob
