Background Information 
Professional profile:

After medical school in Cardiff, I entered specialist cardiology training in London in 1996. During my training I took a year out to specialise in Echocardiography in Vancover Canada. My current post is  Director Cardiac Catheterisation Laboratory and Lead Coronary Interventionalist at University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff.

I also spent time at The Washington Hospital Centre, United States, training in coronary angioplasty. During this period I studied the use of stem cells for the treatment of angina and heart failure.
I have a special interest in complex angiography and angioplasty, most of which I perform from the wrist.
I am also interested in the clinical applications of novel angina treatments such as gene therapy and stem cells.

Personal profile:

Born in Pontypool, I studied medicine at University of Wales College of Medicine. When I have brief opportunities I enjoy golf, football, squash and travelling.
