I pride myself on always taking a practical approach to ensure that we, as a Council, are able to better cater for and meet the needs of the entire Darwin community. I believe in respect for all cultures and take a practical approach to problem solving.

As a full time Lord Mayor, I make a point of being involved with as many community activities as I can manage. This gives me an insight into the different perspectives of our citizens that allows me to more accurately represent the needs of our vibrant and diverse multicultural community.

My Bachelor of Business and Masters of Professional Accounting, coupled with being a Graduate of the Australian Insitute of Company Directors helps ensure that I am making sound decisions that come from a strong knowledge base.
