University: University of Queensland
Postgraduate school: Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia
Favourite Colour: Purple
Favourite Book: The House of God by Samuel Shem (An American novel about medical training, a book every medical student should read)
Favourite Movie: Mad Max 2 (I have a fondness for V8 Falcons)
Least favourite movie: Australia directed by Baz Luhrmann. In my opinion it was not a good use of Australian taxpayers hard earned money. It is not worth watching. Baz Luhrmann said he wanted an epic. In my opinion it was an epic FAIL.
Favourite Food: Jook because it’s comfort food and I can cook it in my favourite kitchen implement, i.e., my pressure cooker. Followed closely by wonton soup.
Favourite Television: All of the Star Trek franchise series, Thunderbirds are Go, Top Gear, Big Bang Theory, Farscape | My interest and love of Star Trek has recently been invigourated by listening to podcats on trek.fm If you like Star Trek I highly recommend trek.fm
Favourite television theme music: Star Trek Enterprise | Where my heart will take me sung by Russell Watson
Favourite Sports: Rugby League (Brisbane Broncos), Rugby Union (Queensland Reds) and Swimming (My favourite swimmer is Susie O’Neil) In terms of State of Origin, I have always been and forever will be a QUEENSLANDER
My most moving professional experience was working at the Royal Darwin Hospital during the Bali Bombings.
I’m a specialist medical practitioner in pathology. My sub-speciality is Clinical/Medical Microbiology. I regard myself mainly as a bacteriologist but feel comfortable with all microbial life forms.
These days though I’m working in the Department of Health in the Health Emergency Management Branch in the Office of Health Protection. On Fridays I’m an Honorary Visiting Medical Officer in Pathology at The Canberra Hospital.
