Born and raised in the Rural City of Wangaratta I am married to my beautiful wife and am proud of my five wonderful children, the youngest of whom is 8.
A fourth generation farmer and livestock producer, I also hold qualifications in wool classing and specialist motor mechanics. In addition, I have worked extensively within the timber, viticulture, dairy, lamb, pig and bee industries, including establishing and marketing my own brand in lamb and honey.
Over 20 years of retail and management experience within the city of Wangaratta has further contributed towards my skills, empathy and understanding required to advocate effectively for every small business, whether rural or city based.
Living on my farm in Carboor allows me to know and deeply appreciate the unique area and people that make up the Southern Ward.
This is what motivates me to be their passionate advocate.
