In my spare time I like to stay up to date with my medical knowledge, but I am also a lover of sci-fi/fantasy books and movies, exploring the parks and trails in Victoria and particularly the Dandenong ranges, and playing board-games - often pulling my wife and friends into a nice long games session.
I'd love to see you to help you out with any problems, so come down and let's have a chat.
