I have always loved running. As a junior middle distance and cross country runner I competed at the national titles and went on junior altitude training camps. I was lucky enough to train with runners that progressed to the World Juniors, Commonwealth Games and the Olympics.
As a result, I developed a keen interest in the biomechanics of running. I realised that a career in Podiatry would enable me to help runners, and others, keep active and achieve their full potential.
HOW I KEEP ACTIVE
Staying active has always been a very important part of my life. I still enjoy running and participating in social triathlons and fun runs.
I enjoy daily walks and bike rides with my wife, Emma, and my young sons Leo and Toby. I’m also a keen surfer and enjoy fishing on my ocean kayak.
EDUCATION AND QUALIFICATIONS
I graduated from QUT in 2006 and initially pursued a job in rural northern NSW which gave me the opportunity to treat varied and complicated podiatry patients.
I opened a podiatry clinic called Foot Faults in 2009, having experienced, first hand as a runner, how debilitating Foot and Leg pain can be. I wanted to create Podiatry clinics that specialised in Sports Podiatry, and was able to take this one step further, by opening The Running Analysis Centre, at Foot Faults Mount Gravatt, in 2017.
I work with a full range of runners including weekend warriors, mum’s (run off their feet by their children), and many competitive runners including triathletes and Olympic contestants.
I am currently enrolled in the Australian Podiatry Association Specialist Sports Podiatrist Program and an active member of the Australian Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine.
