I know Banyule well having lived in Bundoora and Macleod all of my life. My wife and I currently live in Macleod and are raising our two young girls together.
I attended Loyola Secondary College and was an active member of the Diamond Valley Eagles Basketball Association. I continue to support a range of local community groups, including Banyule Community Health and the Watsonia RSL.
This is my third consecutive term as councillor and, as a Finance Director for a large health service, I utilise my financial experience to ensure sound management of Council's services and infrastructure while minimising rate increases. I also have extensive experience and connections with State and Federal governments which I draw on to successfully advocate for local residents.
