I am a paediatric plastic surgeon with a specialist interest in cleft lip and palate surgery at Great Ormond Street (GOSH) for the last 8 years.  Just as with my wife Tracy, both work and home life are full of all things cleft!

Through sharing my expertise I've been fortunate enough to train cleft surgeons at GOSH, who are now consultant cleft surgeons in the U.K. and around the world (Belgium, Canada and Chile).  Most recently sharing my expertise in the management of cleft children with clinical teams from developing countries, including Bangladesh, has enabled CLEFT to support their local care of cleft children and families.

In addition to surgical training, I am a keen cyclist and coordinate a team for CLEFT to participate in the annual Prudential 100 mile cycle ride in London It is a wonderful family weekend event that has raised significant amount of money and awareness for CLEFT.

My aim for this coming year is to increase the number of cleft families that engage with CLEFT so that we can raise awareness, share the good work we do and of course get more families involved in fund raising activities.
