Patrick is a Canberra local born and bred. Graduated from Charles Sturt University (CSU) with Bachelor of Podiatry and Australian Catholic University (ACU) with a Master of High Performance Sport. Patrick’s interest is Sports & Exercise Podiatry with a focus on footwear, biomechanics, lower limb strength & conditioning,  musculoskeletal rehabilitation and objective testing technology. 

He was the first podiatrist in Australia to be a registered with Exercise & Sports Science Australia (ESSA), Exercise Scientist and Level 2 Sports Scientist in 2019. And the only podiatrist in Australia with Australian Strength & Conditioning Association (ASCA), Professional Coaching Accreditation Scheme (PCAS), Professional and Level 2 Strength & Conditioning Accreditation. To reach the level of PCAS Professional which is the minimum standard to work in professional sport in the roles of rehabilitation and strength & conditioning, Patrick had to be mentored and have exposure in professional sporting structures for over 5 years. Patrick has a wealth of experience in all levels of sport from amateur to elite high performance rehabilitation settings and loves to fix all lower limb injuries so you are back stronger than before. 

When Patrick is not thinking about Sports & Exercise Podiatry, he enjoys road cycling, photography, bouldering, trail running, hiking, golf and play guitar while sampling the culinary delights locally and around Australia!
