Dr Chris is initially from Canada and travelled to the UK to study medicine at the University of Birmingham. In 2019, Chris completed the UK National Plastic Surgery Training Program, earning the title of FRCS Plast, which is the UK equivalent of the Australian FRACS. During this time, he also completed a Master of Science degree based on plastic surgery research and published some of this work.
After completing his training, Chris travelled to Edinburgh to complete a cosmetic surgery fellowship. He has since moved to Perth and recently completed a second fellowship at Fiona Stanley Hospital, focusing on skin cancer, breast reconstruction and microsurgery.
