I am an Interventional Cardiologist with considerable experience in the management of all aspects of coronary heart disease.     

 Studied medicine at University of Otago, qualifying in 1987. Junior doctor in Wellington region and pursued cardiology, achieving FRACP in 1998. Post fellowship training in Edinburgh. Returned to New Zealand in 2000 and have been a full time cardiologist in the Wellington region since then.

I am a member of the NZ Interventional Cardiology Group and performs coronary angiography and percutaneous coronary interventions.


In addition to being an Interventional Cardiologist I have a specific interest in the care of children and young adults with congenital heart disease.  I also have expertise in the management of pulmonary hypertension and the oversight of cardiology conditions for women during pregnancy.
