I undertook my medical training at the University of Bristol, qualifying in 1987. I initially trained in general surgery and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1992. I then specialised in ENT surgery and trained at the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital in London and at hospitals in the South West of England. I became a Clinical Research Fellow at the University of Bristol and was awarded a prestigious national research prize for my study into the genetics of sinus disease. I was invited to present this work to a number of international conferences in Europe and America.
In 1999 I undertook a Clinical Fellowship at the University of Toronto, Canada and was also a visiting Fellow in New York and Houston, Texas. In 2000 I became a Consultant Senior Lecturer at the University of Bristol where I was responsible for the teaching of medical students and for the ENT research programme at the university. In 2002 I joined the ENT department at Wexham Park Hospital.
In my NHS practice I undertake general ENT clinics, a children's ENT clinic and a neck lump clinic. I am a core member of the thyroid and head and neck cancer teams and am the Lead for Head & Neck Surgery for my hospital trust. I am also the Lead for Clinical Governance and Quality Assurance for ENT at Wexham Park Hospital. I remain actively involved in training and am the Tutor for ENT in my department. I am the founder and faculty member of the Sinus Surgery Course for trainee surgeons in Bristol.

I've been caring for patients with ear, nose and throat disorders in the Windsor, Slough, Ascot and Maidenhead areas for over 15 years since moving from Bristol. I live in Chalfont St Peter and I'm married to an Intensive Care Consultant. I have three children.
In my spare time I try to keep fit and have run the London Marathon several times. I also enjoy playing golf and I'm a keen skier.
