I am 35 years old and live in Castlecrag. I am a former Deputy Mayor of Willoughby, 2017-2018. My mother’s family moved here from South Australia in the late 1950’s, dad's family from the bush, moving into your typical red brick Aussie home. My wife Victoria and I now live in our home with our two dogs Marnie and Rosie. We enjoy gardening and BBQs.

I attended Shore School in North Sydney, where I devoted much of my time to my love of sport including, skiing, rugby, cricket and athletics, where, the latter, I represented the school at the GPS level earning my School Colours.

I went on to study at Macquarie University after which I worked in marketing for multi-national companies. In 2011 I completed my Master of Management (Business and Marketing) at UTS Graduate School of Business. I am currently studying a Masters in Dispute Resolution at UTS Law.

I work for a not for profit industry body in the ICT sector as the Senior Policy Advisor.

I am very passionate about local issues and good local government. My plan is for better sporting facilities, fairer parking for local residents and a more ‘common sense’ approach to DAs both for the applicant and any objector.

I strongly support Mayor Gail as our leader on Council. Gail is passionate about Willoughby and delivering a better city for all.
