Personal

I've been married to Lindy for 17 years. We have three kids. My interests outside knee surgery and research revolve around active involvement in my kids' lives. This has led me to an active involvement in rugby and rowing in Townsville. Thankfully my skills as a surgeon by far exceed my ability as a rugby coach. I have a background in surf lifesaving, am an accomplished ocean paddler and compete regularly in an ocean ski. I hope to have a crack at the Molokai World Championship race in Hawaii in 2013.
