I have a keen interest in classic cars and enjoy riding my mountain bike to keep fit.

Originally from Edinburgh I moved to Devon as a child and trained in Medicine at Cardiff. My junior posts were based in Wales and London and I moved to the North East for specialist cardiology training in Middlesbrough and Newcastle-upon-Tyne. I have also worked in Adelaide Australia as part of my research project into cardiac CT.
