Surf travel experience: I’ve explored a fair bit of the coastline between Albany and Perth. Been on one trip to Bali.

Education and work experience:

I graduated in 2014 from UWA with a Bachelor of Science majoring in Anatomy and Neuroscience. I remained at UWA and commenced a MD the following year – I am on track to graduate in 2018.  Growing up in rural WA the majority of my work experience was in farming, before moving to Perth to study where I did part-time coaching (tennis, footy) and occasional bar work. 

Any info you would like to add:

I’ve been fairly spoilt with the waves I have on offer at home, but I’m really excited to explore other destinations with the Surfing Doctors and be exposed to some tropical/sports medicine. I’ll be going on my elective over the summer of 2017/18.
