- Our Team

We are very lucky to have such a dedicated team of doctors and nurses at Amberley Medical Centre. Most of our team also live locally and appreciate the importance of a reliable rural medical service.

After graduating from Unitec in 1994 with an associate degree in Architecture, I worked for Team New Zealand in their successful 1995 America’s Cup challenge as a draftsman and sailor. I then moved to San Diego for six years where I worked on the design of America’s Cup class yachts for Dennis Conner. During this period I also designed and sailed on several racing yachts including boats for Mr Disney, the owner of the Walt Disney Corporation. In 2009 a New Zealand owned 100 foot super maxi, Alfa Romeo, that I helped design won the Sydney to Hobart yacht race.


In 2004 I moved back to New Zealand to study medicine at the University of Auckland where I graduated in 2009. During my training I also worked as a volunteer Paramedic with St John. After working as an ENT and Cardiothoracic Registrar in Wellington, I joined the GP training program. In 2012 I moved to Christchurch to be part of the re-build and now work as a GP Registrar at Moorhouse Medical as well as Amberley Medical Centre. I have a particular interest in Minor Surgery, Vasectomies and Dermoscopy.


In my spare time I am learning to play polo and enjoy getting out on my mountain bike, exploring the hills around Christchurch.
