Originally from the UK, he completed his undergraduate training at the University of Dundee before commencing General Physician training with interests in Acute Medicine, Cardiology and Endocrinology. To compliment his acute medicine skills, he undertook further training in Emergency Medicine, Adult Flight Retrieval Medicine, Anaesthesia & Intensive Care, only to discover that Anaesthesia was more interesting for him.

This gives him a firm understanding of the complexities of perioperative medicine and how it relates to the patient.
