I was appointed as a Consultant Urological Surgeon in Bournemouth in May 2007. I graduate from Cambridge University (pre-clinical studies) with a double first in 1990 and from Oxford University (clinical studies) in 1993. I trained in Urology in Oxford, Edinburgh, and Melbourne (where I undertook a fellowship). I provide a full general urology service with a specific interest in prostate disease / prostate cancer, bladder and kidney cancer, and keyhole (laparoscopic and robotic) surgery.
I am actively involved in the training of urological surgeons. I write exam questions for the final FRCS Urology examination and I am a viva examiner.

I undertook a period of full time research in Oxford 1998-2000 and wrote my MD thesis on the growth of new blood vessels (angiogenesis) in kidney cancer.
I have published widely throughout my career, most recently on aspects of prostate cancer / laparoscipic surgery for prostate cancer.
I live locally, am married to a teacher, and have 14 year old twins. I like to run, ski, and do DIY. I am a committed Christian. We are actively involved in our local church and local skatepark (see www.streetlightproject.org.uk and www.thepointwimborne.org)
