    About me

    I have always enjoyed acting and being creative, I had always been a member of my drama society at school and at university. I have spent the last thirty years acting out the part of a doctor and surgeon within the NHS and emergency medicine worldwide. This has given me the opportunity to act out a professional role in a way that the public would expect and beyond that.

    Whilst having this career I have also immersed myself within the creative industry as a musician, as a singer, and as an amateur actor in fringe theatre. I have written for theatre in this area, presented on the e open university as an academic and since my early retirement as a tour guide within the history of medicine at the Science Museum in the UK
