At this critical juncture in the future of our Shire I look forward to being a voice for the community. I appreciate the support I have received which has led to me being elected to Council.

As a Business Manager, Appin resident and single father of three boys, I look forward to being involved in planning a better future for our area.  I believe we can have sustainable, limited growth that is underpinned by well-planned infrastructure.

I have spent most of my life in smaller communities and value the rural lifestyle. I would like to provide more youth-focused activities in our towns, for example a skate park in Appin, so that families don’t have to travel to larger centres for entertainment.

I have been involved in the RFS since I was 8 years old and recognize the importance of building strong communities. With careful planning, we can work together to enhance our wonderfully rich environment, encourage small business and foster a robust local economy.
