Liverpool City Councillor
I am a current Liverpool City Councillor having been elected in 2016. I have spent my entire life in and around the Liverpool area. I spent the first few years of my life growing up in Cartwright and now live in Green Valley with my wife and two children.
Dad was a police officer and mum worked at Franklins. They made huge sacrifices to make sure I had a good home life and got a better education than they were able to.
I was the first in my family to attend and graduate from University. I attended Western Sydney University where I graduated with a Bachelor of International Studies.
Professionally, I’ve had roles in operations, product management and information technology. I’ve worked in the financial services, tertiary education and public sectors, including a stint at my alma mater, Western Sydney University.
In addition to my duties at Liverpool City Council, I’m also the Chair of Western Sydney Migrant Resource Centre and a Director at Settlement Services International.
Through a lot of hard work and some good fortune, I’ve been able to achieve the potential my parents, family, friends, teachers and mentors all saw in me. I’m a Councillor because I want everyone in Liverpool to have those same opportunities and to achieve their full potential.
