Born in the Netherlands, I initially completed my degrees as a cancer researcher. I then moved to Australia, where I trained as a gastroenterologist. I moved my wife and two children to New Zealand to perform advanced interventional endoscopy. This work is very satisfying to me as I can have a big impact on the heath outcomes of my patients.

I am passionate about education outside my work as well. For the last 3 years I have run the "spaceteddy" project at Forrest Hill primary school. By sending a teddy bear into near space, the children learn about science, environment as well as computer programming.

Marius was the first person to take my condition seriously, and do everything in his power to help me. Even when my issues went outside of his scope of work. He is empathetic and diligent, and has been an heavy weight in my corner and my ace up my sleeve. I’m so grateful for him, and would highly recommend.
