Simon is a Sport and Exercise Medicine Registrar and joined the Axis team in 2016. 

Simon Graduated from the Otago School of Medicine in 2002. He spent his initial years working in Emergency Medicine whilst travelling throughout Australia, Asia and Europe. Simon returned to NZ in 2006 where he undertook General Practice training. He has been a Fellow of the Royal College of General Practitioners and consulted for 7 years out of a large family based practice in Orewa. During this time he became a Registrar teacher for the college and was involved with the training of young up and coming GPs. 

Simon completed his post graduate diploma in Sports Medicine in 2014. To further pursue his interest in this area he made the career change to join the team at Axis as a Registrar.

Currently he holds the position of Medical Director for the Blacksticks Men's hockey programme with HockeyNZ and previously he was the medical director for Pathway to Podium through High Performance Sport New Zealand.
