“A physician is obligated to consider more than a diseased organ, more than even the whole man – he must view the man in his world.” – Harvey Cushing.

I began my medical career after graduating from the University of Auckland approximately 15 years ago. Before life as a General Practitioner, I trained predominantly in Surgery and Emergency Medicine both in New Zealand and Australia.

I love meeting people and as I was brought up prioritizing family values, it was only natural that I gravitated to General Practice. 

I am a Fellow of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (RNZCGP) and enjoy all aspects of General Practice. In particular I take special interest in skin cancer surgery, wound & injury care, and Long Term Conditions. 

When not at work, I am likely enjoying time with my family and friends, exercising or looking for the next travel adventure.
