My training had taken me all over New Zealand and the World but I always felt drawn to Dunedin. I was born in Dunedin and went to Medical School here (graduated 1992). I also received a scholarship to study and teach anatomy in Dublin (UDC, graduated 1995).

I trained in all the Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Departments in New Zealand (specialist training completed 2004) then subsequently returned to the UK to gain more experience in cosmetic, hand, breast and microsurgery.

Returning to Dunedin in 2007, I started the Plastic Surgery Department to develop and teach a post-graduate anatomy course at the Medical School.

I work at Southern DHB and in private practice at Fernbrae House, Mercy Hospital Dunedin, Health Central Alexandra, Cromwell and Wanaka Medical Centres.
