Further information
I am a consultant dermatologist for Capital & Coast DHB and have clinics at Wellington Hospital and Kenepuru Hospital. I also have a private dermatology practice and am a founding consultant at the “New Zealand Dermatology & Skin Cancer Centre” based in Wellington.

During my recent overseas training in the United Kingdom (Leeds) I have had the pleasure of working with and learning from experts in all facets of dermatology, including paediatric dermatology, contact allergy, melanoma and phototherapy. After completing general dermatology training I completed a fellowship in Mohs Micrographic Surgery and Laser Dermatology, supervised by both the President and Secretary of the British Society of Dermatologic Surgery. I have been a lecturer for the School of Medicine, University of Leeds.
