I qualified in 1975 after a 3 and half year apprenticeship. I spent 29 years in the RAF mainly working in hospitals home and abroad, and served in Germany, Holland, Sardinia and Cyprus. I left the RAF in 2001 and went to Somerset till 2003. I then worked in Adden Brooks hospital in Cambridgeshire specialising in orthodontics and prosthetics and facial and body prosthetics. I moved to the Island in December 2014 with my wife and 2 dogs and now work with 1st Class dental laboratory doing mainly orthodontic work. My hobbies are 10 pin bowling, fishing and walking the dogs.
