I grew up on a smallholding in Cornwall. After some travelling and working I was lucky enough to get a place at the Royal Veterinary College. I graduated from there in 2001, having met lots of lovely friends, including my wife, during my time there. I moved to Dorset in 2004 and have lived and worked here ever since. I have post-graduate qualifications in ophthalmology and small animal surgery. I have been granted the status of advanced practitioner in veterinary ophthalmology by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.
I live with my wife and two children in an old house that we have been renovating forever. We have dogs, guinea-pigs and chickens. If I can find any spare time I like to walk the dogs, ride my motorbike and have a beer or two with my friends.
I grew up in Jersey, but often came over to South Somerset and Dorset to visit family. I have worked at Haydon Veterinary Centre since graduating with honours from the University of Liverpool in 2012, where I was also awarded the Boehringer prize for small animal orthopaedics. I enjoy all aspects of veterinary medicine; my particular interests lie in canine and feline medicine, diagnostic imaging, and the management of osteo-arthritis. I have recently been awarded a post-graduate qualification in small animal medicine and am working towards gaining advanced practitioner status in this field.
At home I have two troublesome cats and two rabbits. In my spare time I am a keen squash player and play for Bridport Squash Club. I enjoy being outdoors; exploring the surrounding countryside on foot or by bike and exploring the coast by kayak.
