MBBS MSc BSc
Welcome to my academy, where I provide expert instruction with the goal of making aesthetic excellence easily attainable. If you’re on this page then you’d probably like to know a bit more about who I am!
After attending the University of Oxford, King’s College London and Barts and The London School of Medicine, I set out upon my career at NHS England on a surgical track. But my carefully laid plans were soon to change. In the few spare hours I had between hospital shifts, I began a side venture in injectable aesthetics, where I quickly fell in love with injectable aesthetics and developed a particular fascination with the periorbital region.
After transitioning into full-time non-surgical aesthetics, I went on to hold positions at multiple recognisable Harley Street and Knightsbridge clinics, most recently Harvey Nichols’ Beyond Medispa. These experiences led me to my love for teaching (and the reason you’re on this page today!), which I discovered in 2018 after my first Aesthetic Medicine Magazine publication. In the years that followed, I went on to share my case studies, learning, and novel treatment approaches through various mediums: further publications in Aesthetic Medicine and Aesthetic Journal, as a Panelist for Glamour Magazine and as an expert teacher for Teoxane. While my love for the periobital region is unwavering—and you’ll have a tough time getting me to consider treating anything else—I have also developed a tremendous respect for “specialists within aesthetics.” In an industry where everyone does a bit of everything, my vision is to provide every practitioner with exemplary instruction from specialist injectors, each of whom is an expert in their region of the face or stage of development.
Another passion I’ve discovered, and one that nicely complements teaching, is for writing. To date, I have authored two books: “The Essential Eye Beauty Guide,” aimed at new practitioners or patients, and “The Modern Healthcare Professional,” which draws upon my pre-doctor experience (as a banker for Goldman Sachs and Social Tech Entrepreneur) to help other practitioners build successful expert brands as a complement or even alternative to their hospital careers.
At this stage of my career, I’m humbled to be recognised as one of the leading voices in UK periorbital rejuvenation and have made it my mission to build the confidence and skill of practitioners. Why? So that they can reap the benefits of successfully managing the most underserved region in facial injectable aesthetics.
I hope you find what you’re looking for on this platform and enjoy all the value I try to provide. And be sure to check out my Instagram (LINK), where you can follow me on my journey to reinvent facial injectables training or maybe just pick up some helpful tips and tricks.
