Dave qualified in 1992 from the London Hospital Medical College and has been on two Raleigh International expeditions – both as one of the Expedition Medic – one to Guyana in South America and the other to Belize in Central America. Dave qualified as a GP in 1997 but has done large amounts of A&E work in London and Oxford. He completed a Sports Medicine MSc in Nottingham in 1998 and remains a keen sportsman and is a regular skier, mountain biker, diver and tennis player. He does the odd triathlon and has taken up a tentative interest in road biking.
Dave has worked with us on treks in China, the Sierra Nevada, Mount Kilimanjaro and bike challenges in Kenya and Vietnam. He’s also done a conservation project with dolphins in Greece, and with sea turtles in Costa Rica. Dave also had an Art gallery in Oxford for 2 years and has always been very keen on painting, sculpture and photography. He’s planning on doing a part-time Fine Art degree in Oxford starting in 2011. He’s married with a daughter.
