Interests & Hobbies:

Besides vascular disease and biomedical engineering, I am very passionate about the great outdoors and the vast expanse of Western Australia is the perfect place to explore in my trusty 4x4.

My main hobby is mountain biking and I try get out on the local trails a few times a week. I generally enjoy any activity that raises the blood pressure and pushes the body a bit and have finished many different types of adventure race, like Tough Mudder. Also, since moving to Perth I have been introduced to the sport of rogaining. If you like total exhaustion, blisters and mental turmoil, you'll love rogaining....
