Outside of medicine I have several interests, including swimming, in which I represented my country in multiple tournaments. For six years in medical school I was the chief organiser of a drug donation campaign to the poor who can’t afford buying their own medicine. I am a registered blood donor and I donate blood every 12 weeks. I enjoy spending my spare time with my wife and two kids, exploring the beautiful British countryside.
