Life Outside of Work

  • Wife Debbie is an Ophthalmologist, two young daughters Rachael and Amélie. Born and bred Freestater, and long-suffering Cheetahs supporter. I am partial to a good wine should the opportunity present itself, otherwise attempts at woodwork, DIY and nerdy pursuits like computers and academics take up the time I can salvage from work and family.
