He is honoured to be the first Indigenous sports and exercise medicine doctor and will use his skills to help improve Indigenous and rural health outcomes.

Nathan is avid lover of all sports and exercise and played most sports growing up with particular interests in the football codes, athletics, swimming and cricket. These days he prefers to spend his time in the gym attempting to lift heavy things.
