Personal Profile

My social life revolves around my wife and three young children. Having recently bought a family house in Goudhurst, I am now able to apply my interests in garden design and realising my aspiration to cultivate a small orchard. I have travelled widely, but have a particular affinity for the African continent, where I did volunteer work in Zimbabwe for the Medical Air Rescue Service. Prior to medicine, I studied at the University of Sussex achieving a First Class degree in Chemistry, followed by postgraduate work.
