Hi. I grew up in Sydney which is where I met my wife Rosemary whilst training for pharmacy. We had a practice at The Entrance for 19 years. We have now teamed up again at Warnervale ChemistCare.
My Favourite sports are Baseball, Cricket, Volleyball, Tennis, & Golf. Pretty much just play Golf now but I am up for most things. In 2009 I participated as a team in the Oxfam 100km Walk. Our whole team of 4 finished in 32hours.
I love being a pharmacist. In the need to pass on appropriate advice about medications and conditions you get to know people. It is all about mixing with people and seeing all the different journeys in life. Helping is a real high & builds relationships that enrich life.
My areas of interest include – Asthma & Airways conditions (3 asthmatic children); Cardiac including High Blood pressure ( I have high BP); Autoimmune conditions ( In our family we have Chrons, R.A., Polymyalgia Rheumatica, Lupus, etc); Diabetes (1.3 Million Australians know they have it and they estimate another 1.3 Million don’t know that they have it.); Fibromyalgia ( A very misunderstood condition that I have); Children’s medications (Again with 3 children I understand the pressures that parents can be under.
I love a happy work environment, I like to laugh, I find laughter lifts the spirits.
