My wife, who is from Gladstone, and I have recently moved back from Melbourne,started a family and established ourselves in the Wairarapa. We are both physiotherapists and each have a passion for different area’s of physio, but both enjoy the goal of trying to improve our clients well-being.
I love the interaction and problem solving aspects of physiotherapy, and integrating an understanding of how the body works, with what you need to get out of yours, and also how the positive changes we make can also influence overall well-being.
Aside from my work interests, I am also very keen on sport, having played rugby for a number of years, and also when possible I try and get up the mountain on my snowboard. My university years also introduced me to music and I have been playing the guitar fro close to 10 years now.
