As an International Resident Member, which AAOS resources do you use most and why?
Currently the AAOS Meeting videos via OnDemand, as these provide up to date summaries of salient topics with expert insights into common and uncommon orthopaedic problems.

What’s the best advice you were ever given? Who was it from?
My sister told me that you can learn something from anything and from anyone. Even if that is what not to do: it is still valuable.

What’s your go-to productivity trick?
Making something less of a chore means we are more likely to want to do it. I try to increase productivity by keeping otherwise taxing tasks fun, or by ensuring there is a carrot at the end to make it worthwhile

What’s one thing you’re currently trying to make a habit?
Keeping up to date with certain journals to keep abreast of the literature (refer to the previous answer!)

What hobbies do you enjoy in your spare time?
Running, hiking, kitesurfing, mountain biking, and eating too much!

Tell us a fun fact about yourself that not many people know?
I have a natural ability to make an uncanny impression of the North Island warbling mountain goat.
