Stephen grew up in Hobart and studied Optometry in Brisbane after living and working in Japan for eight years. He graduated with honours from Queensland University of Technology in 2010 and later completed a Certificate in Ocular Therapeutics at the Australian College of Optometry.
Stephen practised optometry in Devonport for eight years before again travelling to Japan, this time with his wife and two children. He returned to Tasmania in September 2021, when he began a new chapter in his career at Total Eyecare.
He enjoys getting to know his patients and prides himself on attention to detail in the consultation room. He enthusiastically embraces new technologies that enhance the care he is able to provide to his patients.
Stephen’s two young children keep him busy outside work, and his interests include cycling and baking bread.
