Tony went to school in two different countries and trained in Trauma and Orthopaedic surgery in three different continents. He has a love of all motor sports (particularly F1 racing), and in the winter months he is happiest on skis.

In the summer he is happiest on the water, which allows him to continue to enjoy international travel discovering the wonders of different cultures.

He is married with a son and so now enjoys watching his son developing expertise in his own preferred sports.
