    • When I am not working: I spend at home with my family in my extensive garden and I love reading.
    • I wish I could: Become a part time successful inventor. Currently I have a number of projects underway. I have time to write another book or two as medicine has been fascinating for me. I would also like to spend more holiday time back in my native NZ.
    • Most people don’t know: That I’m a bit of a quiet nerd. I like reading science,  history, autobiographies and some fiction. I am comfortable being on my own thinking about stuff and reading.
