Nigel completed his undergraduate studies in Singapore, then worked in general practice and was also in the military for 2 years. Additionally, he worked as a diving medic in the navy. 

In 2017 he moved to New Zealand and finished his urgent care fellowship in 2020.

Nigel's areas of interest include skin cancer, sports medicine and minor surgeries. As a water polo player for 10 years in Singapore, he developed a keen interest in sports medicine during his time on the pitch—and still plays water polo when he gets the chance! In his spare time (when he's not snowboarding), Nigel enjoys traveling and spending time with friends.

Nigel is fluent in Mandarin and conversational in Malay and Japanese. 

After diverse experiences in general practice and the military, I found my passion in skin cancer, sports medicine, and minor surgeries.
