About Me

I will be running in the upcoming election as an independent candidate for the House of Reps seat of Canberra (Inner North and Inner South). 'Running as an Independent Candidate’ means I will be free from the backroom deals, favours, alliances and paybacks – I represent the people’s interests, not my party’s. I’m a born and bred Canberran. The inner north and inner south seat of Canberra is where I have lived, worked, studied, built businesses, contributed to the community and am now with my wife bringing up three children, a dog and a goldfish.
