Tell us about your background? (Family, career, professional experiences)

A local business operator since 2003, I have been a keen observer of Council. My background is as a Professional Land Surveyor.

What are your most enjoyable hobbies/interests?

Gliding – I have been a member of the Grampians Soaring Club (located at the Ararat Aerodrome) since 2000.

What do you see as the biggest strengths within the municipality of the Ararat Rural City and what is your vision for the next four years?

My primary focus is to contribute to a forward looking strategy – Ararat 2025. What is our vision, where do we want to be and how do we get there? Ararat 2025 will provide the framework for job opportunities for our kids, growth for our local business, better services and the framework for the CEO and Council Officers to achieve the vision of your elected Councils.
