I qualified as a Physiotherapist in the UK in 2015 and moved to Toronto later that year. Prior to physiotherapy, I completed a BSc in Exercise & Sports Science with a special interest in recovery from exercise and how it relates to performance.

Physiotherapy was an obvious choice for me, as it combines my interest in the human body, exercise, and performance. This allows me to work with amazing people to improve their physical health and reach their goals.

Physiotherapy is my passion.

As our family was growing, my wife (Robyn) and I wanted to move out of the city. Collingwood became an obvious choice as we love the character of the downtown area, the community feel, and all of the activities of the Georgian Bay right on our doorstep. We made the move to Collingwood at the end of 2019, and we already love being here and becoming a part of the community.

This move gave me the opportunity to start a new chapter in my career and evaluate what was important to me in providing the best care for my clients. As an independent practitioner, I have the opportunity to prioritize building relationships with my clients and taking on their goals. This is my focus, and it allows me to provide truly personalized care without the structure of larger facilities.

Physiotherapy is an ever-changing profession and I continue to work on my education to learn new skills and stay up-to-date with the research so that my treatment plans are effective. I enjoy medical research, and an important part of my role is educating both my clients and the local community with up-to-date information that will benefit them.

Outside of the world of Physiotherapy, I am an avid sports fan. I played everything available to me growing up, but soccer (football) was my main sport. I now spend my time running, working out at CrossFit, and spending as much time as possible (never enough) on the Golf course. Robyn and I love paddleboarding, swimming, and being on the lake at the Cottage, as well as exploring the local area for hikes, restaurants, coffee shops, and breweries.
