Chiropractic, Remedial Massage & Traditional Acupuncture
I graduated from the Macquarie University in 2004 with a Masters in Chiropractic, and was humbled to receive the prestigeous Chiropractic Association Of Australia National Graduate of the Year Award, as well as the Vice Chancellor’s Award for Academic Skills and Leadership. Soon after graduating, I traveled to the UK, opening my own practices and treating a range of different conditions and people. After some years in Scotland, I took my knowledge, experience (and my beautiful Scottish wife) back to Australia to continue spreading the benefits of Chiropractic.
The results that I have seen in my career motivate and inspire me to educate anyone that suffers with pain and discomfort about the invaluable assistance that Chiropractic can offer them. Long-term results and resolution is what I am interested in for my patients, and seeing their lives improve due to this holistic approach makes me truly content.
Chiropractic is for everyone, young and old, and I take it upon myself to work with several different techniques to work with your body and your needs, so that you can feel your best. I spend a lot of time creating treatment plans for each and every patient, assisting them with postural exercises and monitoring so that they can strengthen and tone the right muscles to maintain beautiful posture and reduce pain. This means my patients understand causative factors to their pain, which I think is very important in long term pain management.
I am so delighted to be able to offer my skills to you, and I look forward to seeing you at North Lakes Chiropractic.

My own Chiropractic journey started aged 15, where my life was turned upside down following a rugby injury.
It was that Chiropractic experience which has motivated and inspired me to educate and inspire others as to the benefits of chiropractic.
I love providing natural Chiropractic care to those suffering acute or chronic pain and to aid families in getting back to participating fully in the activities they enjoy.
As everyone is different, in order to achieve the best results possible, I use a combination of different techniques ranging from manual adjusting to activator, drop piece & myofascial trigger point release.
My academic background includes studies as a chiropractor at Central Queensland University (CQU) in Brisbane with a Bachelor of Science (Chiropractic) and a Master of Clinical Chiropractic.
Outside of practice, I love exercising, going to the gym, spending time with family, cooking and meeting new people.
A little bit about me below:
-I grew up in Adelaide, before relocating to Melbourne to complete my university studies. Growing up, I was always surrounded by sport and played Aussie Rules, basketball and I also competed in rowing.
-I have always been surrounded by chiropractic, with both my father and Grandmother being chiropractors themselves!
-I completed my chiropractic studies in Melbourne at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) with a Bachelor of Health Science and a Bachelor of Applied Science (Chiropractic).
-In practice, I enjoy tailoring my treatments to the patients’ needs, using a variety of chiropractic techniques including manual adjusting, drop piece adjusting, biomechanical blocks, activator and soft tissue release therapy.
