Nothing is more important to me than my family – my wife, Taryn, and our five amazing kids. I grew up around Caboolture and my Mum and Dad still live in the family home at Burpengary.
After a few years away with Uni and my first job in Canberra, Taryn and I returned to Queensland and settled in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. Now you’d have to pry us out with a crow-bar!
An Active Community Member
I have proudly represented our community since 2009. I love nothing more than getting out and about. Whether it’s visiting schools and tackling the kids’ “Question Time”; attending our amazing Agricultural Shows; supporting our vibrant community groups – our historical societies, senior citizens, service clubs, men’s sheds, artisan groups and the list goes on; and, lending a hand with our passionate sporting groups.
Working with locals, I’m proud to have delivered some great achievements for the Glass House Electorate including new overtaking lanes on the D’Aguilar Highway, traffic lights at Reed Street and Bowen Road, a new Maleny Police Station, a new bridge over the Mary River at Conondale, and loads of funding for community and sporting groups from Flaxton in the north to Mt Mee in the south and all places in between.
Recent changes to Queensland’s state electorate boundaries are now complete and I would officially like to welcome you to your new state Electorate of Glass House!
To those of you who I have had the privilege of representing over the years, you know we still have more to do together. To those of you who are new to the Electorate, I can’t wait to meet you and hear how I can assist you.
I stand ready to continue to represent the needs of our communities in this great part of our State.
