After he attained his national diploma in Podiatry, he went on to achieve a Bachelor of Science degree in Podiatric studies from the University of Brighton, UK in 1998.

Whilst committed to achieving further academic qualifications, in 1981 he began working in private practice in Johannesburg, the city from which he continues to operate. He has served as the Executive Chairman of The South African Podiatry Association (1987 -1999), as well as Chairman of the Board for Podiatry (1988 -1993): SAMDC/INMDC/ HPCSA.
