As with most in this field, sport and exercise is a big part of my life, and helping other people of all abilities enjoy this through keeping them fit and active is extremely rewarding.
I have become a Sports and Exercise Medicine Registrar after spending the previous five years in hospital training and General Practice. During this time I was actively involved in Sports and Exercise Medicine with the goal to undertake Specialist training in this field. This year, I am excited to come on board with Dr Ross Cairns at Newcastle Sports Medicine clinic in Warners Bay as a Sports Medicine Registrar.
I am a born and bred Novocastrian and understand how important both sport and the sporting teams are to this community. I completed my medical degree through the Joint Medical Program between the University Of Newcastle and the University of New England and then completed my hospital training mostly at John Hunter Hospital. The last 3 years I have been in Canberra completing my General Practice training, whilst gaining further experience in Sports and Exercise Medicine. I’m now back in Newcastle with my wife Kali and my miniature sausage dog Adi.
I enjoy all sports and still attempt to play soccer and basketball with very limited success.
In the past I have been involved with providing medical coverage at all levels for rugby union, rugby league and soccer.
