Consultant ENT Surgeon Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

I recognise the need for a healthy balance between my work and personal life. I have taken up martial arts and am proud to say I am a black belt in Taekwondo, which I attained in 2015, and am now a second Dan.

I practice yoga regularly which keeps me calm and refreshed. I rejuvenate myself by going to the gym.

Cars are my other passion. I love driving and have been to Europe on long road trips a few times and during the recent trip in August 2016, I covered over 2000 miles visiting six countries in eight days.
