My Story

I was born in Manchester, United Kingdom.  I stayed in the north of England for my medical and basic surgical training in Leeds and York.  I Moved to Australia in 2006, with my wife, who was born in Melbourne.

I am married and have 2 daughters, I live close to my surgical practice allowing me access to my patients at short notice.  Away from medicine I enjoy spending time at home and at the beach with my family.  Promising rugby and cricket achievements as a young man have made way for a very average game of golf.
