Professional Education

I have completed a year at Auckland University of Technology, 4 years at University of Waikato
and earned a double major Bachelors of Science degree (physiology and psychology), and 4 years
at the prestigious NZ College of Chiropractic.

Following 4 years of practice I decided to start training in Clinical Neuroscience, I have completed a

Post Doctoral diploma in Clinical Neuroscience. Following the PG.Dip.Clin.Neuro.Sc I then undertook

the study and trinning to take my Chiropractic Studies to the top of the Chiropractic specialty ladder

and in August 2014 sat the rigorous 4 part DACNB board proficiency exams, which confirs successful candidates with "Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Neurology Board". I consultant for Neurology issues for patients of Chiropractors, and other manual therapists.

I have also studied for and am a candidate for a FABVR (Fellowship in Vestibular Rehabilitation) The American Board of Vestibular Rehabilitation is a sub agency of the American College of Functional Neurology. It certifies clinicians who have demonstrated appropriate skills in applications of vestibular rehabilitation procedures and awards the designation of Fellow of the American Board of Vestibular Rehabilitation to qualified specialists. 

Ongoing Education

I am taking papers towards my FABBIR (Residency) Fellowship in the American Board of Brain Injury Rehabilitation

I am also a candidate for a FACFN (Fellow of the American College of Functional Neurology).

I have found that you can’t just rehab the brain and neurons- you have to fix the brain support mechanisms and its’ fuel delivery and oxygen delivery as well, so therefore to ensure that I stay current with the growing chronic autoimmunity and chronic inflammation tidal wave that is coming, I am preparing to be a leader in Integrative Health Care.

I am studying with the Institute of Functional Medicine for my AMFCP, Applied Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice.

Topics include:

  • Gastrointestinal dysfunction and its links to chronic disease

  • Nutritionally focused assessment and treatment

  • Food sensitivities, allergies, and intolerances

  • Inflammation and immune dysregulation

  • Toxins, toxicity, and impaired biotransformation

  • Insulin resistance and cardiometabolic syndrome

  • Hormonal imbalance including adrenal, thyroid, and sex hormones

  • Oxidative stress, mitochondrial dysfunction, and fatigue

Also studying with the International College of Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine to specialise further in Clinical Nutrition, Mitochondrial Dysfunction, Microbiome and Dysbiosis, Functional Inflammology, Pain Management, Integrative Rheumatology, Nutritional Immunomodulation, Immunonutrition and Antiviral Strategies.


I practiced in Cork from 2003 until 2010, then was away for 3 years living back in 
New Zealand to be close to family and friends, but primarily to start our own family. We
then returned to sell the practice in August 2013-2016 and to organise the transition

to the new owners.

We now have an energetic 11 year old boy, Lucca, and our own Irish born lad, Caleb
who is 9 years old and keeps his parents busy.

Life is different now with two young boys, I am blessed to be able to have half day shifts,
when the boys are in school while I am at work, but then I get to spend time with them
for the rest of the day. Not many Dads get to do that when their kids are young.

New Zealand is home and is beautiful but it is so far away from Europe’s hussle and bussle, ease of movement between countries and diverse cultural exposure. Our family is settled back into Kiwi life and we are looking forward to bringing up our two boys in this wonderful country

I love mountain biking, playing tennis and squash. While in New Zealand I started MTB hill riding/walking. My passion is sailing, more specifically yacht racing and I have competed in some of the largest regattas in Europe while in Cork.


My wife and I have been following our own message of healthy living and healthy lifestyle, although we do enjoy a bottle of Central Otago wine once in a while, Everything in moderation is my creed!

Enough about me! Now I'd like to meet you!
