Personal Profile

I possess excellent communication and motivational skills and have a proven track record in team leadership. My enthusiasm, passion and focus enable me to build good rapport with patients.

As a consultant interventionalist I strive to continue developing in this dynamic field and I have extended the structural interventional side. Also my academic interest will always be my drive to publish in peer reviewed medical journals and initiate new projects.

I am a co-founder and a major contributor for a new website (October 2007): www.heartstuff.org, for healthcare professionals to share their work.  Doctors, Nurses, Radiographers, Paramedics and Electrophysiologists so far, have submitted their work for the benefit of other medical professionals. Heartstuff.org is a non commercial, not for profit site and every effort is made to keep it that way.

I was for 2 years the university champion and a member of the tennis team which competed at a national level. Also I enjoy Cycling long distances.
