Emergency medicine consultant, Bunbury and Murdoch, Western Australia.
Club Doctor, Associates Rugby Club
Chief advisor to Combat Sports Commission Western Australia
Born In Belfast, grew up in Kingston, Jamaica
My dad was interested in boxing and I was initiated watching "Thursday night at the fights" with him in Jamaica. This broadcast the big American fights free!
Went back to high school in Belfast and had a short amateur boxing career. Unfortunately switched to Rugby due to friends.
Graduated from Dundee university, Scotland in 1996 and came to Australia in 1998. Always interested in boxing, but kept with Associates rugby club as player and club doctor. 6 years ago rugby injuries took their toll, and I decided to mix the two loves of medicine and combat sports. Since then I have been the medical support for most regular events in Western Australia
I have presided over many world title events in Western Australia in both Boxing and Muay Thai and also multiple regional, national and state wide titles.
There is an emerging aspect of MMA events which are becoming a significant role also.
My primary role in combat sports is to ensure the safety of all participating in the events, a job which I take seriously, but also enjoy doing greatly.
