I am a Dunedin-raised lad so I know the area well. I have blue and gold in my veins. I originally graduated with a BCom from Otago University. I returned from Melbourne to study physiotherapy and start working in private practice. I have developed my musculoskeletal knowledge and manual therapy skills as my prime focus and work closely with local sports enthusiasts, elite cricketers from Otago and New Zealand Cricket and Southern Hockey. I enjoy the problem solving and mentoring that physiotherapy provides by getting ‘hands on’.
I have completed the SPNZ Level 1 Sideline Management course, Immediate Care & Sports Trauma Management (Level 1), Advanced Dry Needling, and am a registered Dry Needling practitioner with PAANZ.
My wife Katie and I took over ownership at Gardens Physiotherapy at the end of 2014 and we are both proud to be back in the Valley where we started our respective careers. I also have two young daughters (Neve and Isla) who like to keep me busy when away from physiotherapy.
Whenever possible I like to get out running through the hills of Dunedin and the lower South Island.
