Didier was born in England, spent his childhood in Africa and qualified from the University of Wales School of Medicine in the United Kingdom. After working in various specialties and gaining a few Fellowships along the way, he decided that the only speciality that would still excite him when he was 50-years-old was emergency medicine. This has proved to be true.

The adrenaline of working in EM was what first attracted him to EM. Didier now enjoys the ability to contribute to EM education, system improvement and culture change. Outside of work, Didier enjoys riding horses and motorbikes.
