CURRENT POSITION: Orthopaedic Registrar, Cologne, Germany
FAVOURITE SURF DESTINATION:
France, Tenerife, Bali
Europe, Canary Islands, Cape Verde, Costa Rica, Brazil, South Africa, Mozambique, Tanzania, Uzbekistan (apparently no surf there), Bali, Malaysia, Australia
WORK EXPERIENCE and EDUCATION:
After internships in Orthopaedic Surgery, Bern, Switzerland and General Surgery, Port Shepstone, South-Africa in 2006 I worked at General Surgery and Trauma Surgery departments in university hospitals close to Heidelberg, Germany.
Recently I finished my speciality training in Orthopaedic surgery in Cologne, Germany.
In between I worked as a Medical officer for skiing instructor trainees in France and as a GP at the Serengeti National Park, Tanzania.
I guess no one outside of Germany (and Scandinavia) ever pronounced my name properly. Free drink if you can!
ANY OTHER INFORMATION THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD ABOUT YOURSELF:
I have loved the ocean and travelling for as long as I can remember. Being landlocked is quite frustrating for a surfer but meeting different people and cultures is always so rewarding to keep on. Combining all this with my profession to help people is just perfect!
