First and foremost, I am a father of two, Edward and Sylvie, at almost six and three and a half respectively, and as such am here as a consumer representative. I am also a New Zealand registered physiotherapist who owns and operates a private practice in Motueka and I have a background in health promotion and primary health care project management. 

I am hoping that as a father I can bring a differing perspective to the work being done on the Aotearoa Midwifery Project and contribute in a way that will enhance mother and child wellbeing through enhancing wellbeing of the wider whānau. I am also looking forward to benefiting from being involved in a 'neighbouring' health profession, in which hopefully I can contribute some informed but outside perspective to discussions.
