I’M a 35-year-old fa­ther of two, a sales pro­fes­sional, born and raised in New Nor­folk.

My pas­sion has al­ways been my com­mu­nity. At 17, I started vol­un­teer­ing and still con­tinue to­day.

I have been the Deputy Mayor for the past four years and feel it’s the right time to take the next step.

The Der­went Val­ley is on the cusp of great­ness and all it needs to go fur­ther is some strong lead­er­ship and sen­si­ble de­ci­sion mak­ing.

I have cham­pi­oned many great changes dur­ing my time on coun­cil an will con­tinue that as Mayor.

With many long-term is­sues hold­ing this coun­cil back or too many years, we’ve worked hard over the last term to get them back in line and I believe we are now on track to move for­ward and pros­per.

With youth, pas­sion, drive and pro­fes­sion­al­ism I can make the dif­fer­ence.
