How can I help you?

My vision for our City is to see it grow and develop into a City where businesses are encouraged to be enterprising but also supports and nurtures families and community networks. 

A City which is inviting and safe for residents and visitors regardless of religion, race or origin.  A City which is well planned and sustainable, a City which is so outstanding that everyone else on the planet wished they lived here too.

I’m here to serve the Southport Electorate, which includes the suburbs of Ashmore, Keebra Park, Crestwood Heights, Molendinar, Benowa and Bundall. If I can ever be of service please feel free to contact me on 0430 209 995 or at

In 2017 Topical Cyclone Debbie absolutely decimated the Great Barrier Reef’s inshore coral populations at the Whitsundays.

The Australian Institute of Marine Science and Southern Cross University are doing some groundbreaking research into reef restoration by catching coral spawn and helping it to reproduce. The spawning events happen once a year, and without intervention the survival rate is 1 in a million, but the process of catching and isolating the spawn in small pools increases that chance to 1 in 10,000.

I had the great privilege last night of joining the team and some local volunteers for the spawning event. We collected around 20 million eggs which will be used to help reseed the reef. 🐠🐬🐡

🎉 Opening of the Gold Coast Youth Foyer!

🏠 Today marks the opening of a Youth Foyer here on the Gold Coast. You might be asking: what is a Youth Foyer?

ℹ️ The Foyer Model is an approach to youth homeless that attempts to ensure that youths who are at-risk of or have experienced homelessness are supported to ensure they don't end up in the cycle of long-term poverty and disadvantage in adulthood.

🏘️ The Foyer includes 40 one-bedroom apartments for eligible youths, to help assist them in completing education and gaining skills that can assisted young people in being employed and breaking out of the homelessness cycle.

I am passionate about homelessness, and this is another great initiative here in the great electorate of Southport designed to help combat homelessness.

👏 I want to congratulate the entire team at the Gold Coast Youth Foyer for getting it started and in particular celebrate Matt and Maria for the exceptional work they put into fighting youth homelessness on the Gold Coast.

🙌 It's so important for us to #taketime for activities that boost your mental wellbeing. This is the theme for this year's #mentalhealthweek.

🍽️ For those who know me well, you'll know I really enjoy a good lunch, especially at the end of a busy week. So to kick it off, I invited Mental Health Commissioner Ivan Frkovic to speak at a long lunch at the Ashmore Tavern, raising funds for the Gold Coast Community Legal Centre - a terrific not for profit service in the electorate.

All funds raised will go to support the centre's vulnerable clients experiencing, or at risk, of mental health issues. Thank you so much to Victoria and the team who do a terrific job supporting those in the local community!

Is coral a plant or an animal? Spent some time at the Australian Institute of Marine Sciences today learning about coral spawning, growth, bleaching and reproduction. Incredible! ... See moreSee less
