Craig graduated from Victoria University in 2007 with a Bachelors Degree in (Clinical Science) and Masters Degree in Osteopathy. A passionate sportsman Craig has had his own share of injuries so is often speaking from experience when consulting with patients.

Aside from working in the practice he is a lecturer at Victoria University, a Clinical Supervisor for the Osteopathic Student Clinic and an Anatomy Teacher at Deakin University Medical School, he maintains a close eye on changes to injury treatment and management and incorporates these into his consultations, to ensure that patients are getting the best possible care available.

Craig was fortunate to work as an Osteopathic consultant in India with world leading Orthopaedic surgeon Dr Anant Joshi at Sports Med Mumbai. This was a fantastic learning experience dealing with post operative care for many knee and shoulder surgeries and provided an opportunity to learn more about the surgical procedures and experience the surgeons’ view of the patients’ ongoing treatment plan. While in India it was not unusual to have patients fly in from other cities or drive in excess of 400km just for an appointment. This was a special, yet demanding experience.

Heavily involved at the Williamstown CYMS Football Club, Altona Swimming Club and local cycling groups he is still deeply connected with the local community. Retiring from football in at the end of 2013, Craig set his sights on cycling and Ironman Melbourne (March 2015). Ironman was a great experience, both the actual event and the discipline to train for the preceding 12 months. Recently Craig has been cycling more, including being a participant in a “pretty full on altitude training study” at Victoria University and regular podium finishes in local cycling races.

Craig also works as a volunteer, running many programs for Very Special Kids and Lord Somers Camp, a Victorian community organisation.
