Hello! I train healthcare professionals how to help their patients stop snoring; sleep and breathe at the same time. Many of my customers find their work so rewarding they limit their practice to it.

I began in the sleep business in 1994, yet I am NOT a pharmacist, dentist nor a doctor. I am however, an instructor, inventor, author, market access business consultant, car enthusiast, amateur cook and proud Dad to 2 fab kids.

I used to make oral appliances for diagnosed sleep apnoea patients and there’s more about me here .
