I’m the youngest of 5 siblings and grew up in Cape Town after being born in Mossel Bay in 1964 – now you can work out how old I am!

I went to school in Cape Town and after completing my National Service I started studying Economics at Stellenbosch University. A combination of realising that economics and I weren’t the best of friends and dating a girl whose uncle’s were chiropractors, who explained the philosophy, art and science of chiropractic, made me realise that I wasn’t cut out to be an economist but instead wanted to dedicate my studies and life to helping people.

This decision was cemented when I was treated by a local chiropractor for a chronic groin injury that kept me out of all sport for over a year. After just two adjustments I felt an incredible difference in my ability to run. I was more balanced and more importantly pain-free!

So I changed my course of study and completed a Bachelor of Science degree majoring in Human Movement Science before applying and being accepted to Palmer College of Chiropractic, which is the oldest chiropractic school in the world located in the Midwestern state of Iowa in America.

Something else happened to me while at Palmer. Being a chiropractic student I regularly got adjusted, as we all practiced on each other, and I started to notice that I suffered from fewer colds, my memory and concentration improved which emphasised first hand the important health benefits of being under regular chiropractic care. 

After graduation I completed a 3 month stint working for a chiropractor in Wisconsin as an examination doctor, when I felt home and especially Africa call me back to South Africa. I worked as an associate in a busy practice in East London before returning to Cape Town to set up my own practice in Bellville at the end of 1995. I sold that practice in 2013 and have been in my current practice since then on Belvedere Rd, near the well known coffee shop, Starlings, in Claremont.

In 2002 I met my dynamic and beautiful wife, Lindsy, while running the Two Oceans ultra marathon and we got married in 2004. Together we have 3 wonderful and amazing children, Luke, Joe and Anna, who bring joy and a smile to my face every day. As a family we spend a lot of time in nature preferring the road less travelled creating incredible memories and experiences.

I’m the happiest and most at peace in nature, be it in the mountains, running climbing or hiking, or at the beach and in the sea. I love adventure, being challenged both mentally and physically. Travel is a huge passion and we have a bucket list as long as my arm!

I’m fascinated with human performance and wellbeing, trying to figure out what makes us tick and perform at the highest level. As a result I constantly read and increase my knowledge and learning so that I can pass that on to anyone who seeks to receive care from me.

I consider my health and wellbeing to be one of my most important assets. I strongly hold the view that it’s easier to maintain and restore health than it is to treat disease. I feel that one of the best ways to convey this message is to role-model so I continue to receive regular adjustments which has, together with following a very healthy diet and lifestyle, massively contributed to keeping me healthy and enabled me to complete numerous endurance events and mountain expeditions.
