I have worked in renewable energy for the last 11 years as an executive and senior executive at a global level, helping to deliver clean energy in many countries. I feel at home here in Townsville.
During my younger years, I was forced to move between youth refuges, foster homes and government services. I witnessed too many domestic violence events – which drove us repeatedly into homelessness.
I'm a firm believer in universal access to essential services like housing, mental and dental health and free, lifelong education. These kinds of policies aren’t a cost or a burden on our society – they are a strategic investment in the very things that make us the lucky country.
