Mike Garlick

Head of Development

Music has always been a big part of my life and initially my lifelong dream was to be a rock star as the drummer in a metal band. I had a good crack at it and loved every second of it but sadly it wasn’t to be. During my time in the band I taught myself the basics of web development and really enjoyed it and so I decided to change my career path.

Whilst at university I completed a placement at an agency where I was introduced to custom WordPress development and knew immediately that it was what I wanted to continue doing. After university I worked at a few different places but when I saw that a web development agency like Fishtank were looking for someone to lead their development team I jumped at the chance.

I am very proud of the growth Fishtank has seen in recent years and am privileged to be surrounded by very talented people. The variety of projects we get to work on at Fishtank is fantastic and having a picturesque backdrop of the Mirfield countryside at our office just makes it the perfect environment for great productivity and creativity. That, and the unlimited free coffee! 

Life Outside Fishtank

Outside of work I have 2 children and so most of my time is spent with my family. When I do have some spare time I love to go see live music as mush as possible. I enjoy a good pub quiz every now and then with a few beers of course. I’m a big fan of pretty much anything science fiction and my guilty pleasure has to be Star Trek.

Bucket List Best Bits

Weirdly, I have an affinity for American country music and would really love to go to somewhere like Nashville and soak up some of those country vibes. Get myself a ridiculous cowboy hat or something stupid and watch some live country music.
