General Practitioner |

I have been a GP in North West Sydney for the last seventeen years, after attending the University of Newcastle and training at Westmead Hospital. I joined Citizens Climate Lobby in late 2016 and have been to Canberra with them to lobby Federal MPs twice so far. I am a member of DEA and Lane Cove Coal and Gas Watch, and have lobbied my state and federal local MPs about issues to do with air and water pollution with the latter group.

I am passionate about doing what I can to influence those in power about the climate and the need for clean air and water.  My motivation? My six year old son, my work as a doctor, and my ethical responsibility to leave the world better than I found it, if I can.
