I am a rural Generalist working in the tropical, remote northwest of Australia. I work in ED, Anaesthesia and Critical care. I am essentially a self-taught ultrasonographer with a passion for education and knowledge translation. I have been a Professor with the ULA since its inception and especially enjoy discussing the utility of ultrasound in resource-poor environments. When I am not working or scanning I enjoy traveling the world with my wife and 3 boys.          Twitter: @broomedocs
