I trained in upper GI cancer surgery in London and the south of England and I am the Trust Surgical Lead for upper GI cancer.
I am the clinical lead for upper GI surgery in Portsmouth and helped develop a service which carries out more than 1,000 cholecystectomies each year with a 2% conversion rate, plus a successful day-case antireflux surgery service.
I spent 20 years in the Royal Navy as a Medical Officer, serving in submarines and ships, including in Iraq and Afghanistan - this experience fuelled my interest in emergency surgery and trauma surgery.
Other AUGIS members I work with:
I am a keen runner, skier and mountaineer, having climbed 13 of the 4,000m peaks in the Alps. At home, I spend my time playing sport, chess and music with my two boys to try to keep them away from the iPad.
