He is a General Practitioner and health commentator on radio, print and TV, but proudly states his true home is with RRR on the team with Panel Beater and Neonatal.

He graduated from Monash University in 2008 and is a fellow of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP). His areas of interest are evidence-based medicine and debunking misinformation about health. He is currently advocating for patients and healthcare workers in the response against COVID-19.

How and when did you first connect with Triple R?

As a uni student, I was too poor for an ipod, and found this radio station that played the music I liked!

What does Triple R mean to you?

Unlike much other media, it is accountable and beholden to the interest of only one entity - our community.

What’s your favourite Triple R story?

Interviewing passionate advocate, and Nobel Laurete Dr Ruth Mitchell, speaking about asylum seekers in detention, when she said “We have been sold a lie that there is a ‘them’ and ‘us’. It’s all ‘us’. Pindrop silence and moist eyes in the studio.

Describe your happy place.

A theatre – in the audience, or on stage.

The studio door has accidentally jammed shut with you stuck inside. If there was only one album in there, what would you want it to be, and

why?

Anything by Nat King Cole or Luther Vandross
