I am an established leader in Queensland’s tourism industry. My wife, Trudi, & I have lived in Cairns for more than 20 years, choosing to raise our two children in the tropical north. 

I have a vast experience over many decades as a businessman and on state, national and regional tourism boards.

Driving new job and economic opportunities for the region is a priority for me. I have the life experience, a clear vision and the negotiating and management skills to get things done for the people of Cairns. 

I have always believed in giving back to the community and this is reflected in my commitment to a number of not-for-profit organisations. I serve as the Chair of Access Community Housing - the largest not-for-profit community housing initiative in Far North Queensland. I have also served as a past Director of Tourism & Events Queensland, and an elected member of Tourism Tropical North Queensland and Port Douglas Daintree Tourism.

I am honoured to be your elected Member for Cairns.
