Background Information 
Professional profile:

I undertook my medical degree at King's College London obtaining MBBS BSc (Hons) with a Distinction in Surgery, during this time I also obtained a degree in Theology.

I completed my Neurosurgical training in London, working at Charing Cross Hospital, Queens Hospital and The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.

I sub-specialised in spinal surgery from an early stage in my training, whilst working for Professor Alan Crockard.

On completion of my training I took up a Consultant post at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford for 1 year.

Currently I am the Consultant clinical lead for complex spine disease for the department of Neurosurgery at Hull Royal Infirmary, and the only complex spinal neurosurgeon covering Hull and East Yorkshire.


Personal profile:

I was a keen sportsman in my youth, having represented England in Athletics and the South-West region in football and rugby.

I have also held a private pilots license and black belt in Shotokan karate, but now prefer the slightly more sedentary pursuit of climbing Scottish Munro's and the occasional marathon.
