About Me

I love the Top End, and I’m proud to call it home. I live in Darwin with my wife Kate and our kids Sally and Frank. Like many Territorians, I moved here from down south, fell in love with the place, and never looked back.

I come from a military family: My Pop served in World War Two, my father served in Vietnam, and two of my brothers and I have all served in the Australian Defence Force. Our Defence and veterans community, especially in Darwin and Palmerston, means a lot to me.

For almost six years now in Federal Parliament, I’ve been fighting for a better Australia for our kids to grow up in. I want an Australia with a world-class education system, universal healthcare backed by Medicare, and fair and decent job opportunities for all.

That’s why I’m fighting for the north, and am committed to putting Darwin and Palmerston first.
