About me

As a long-term Surrey Hills resident, I greatly value our tree-lined streets, parks, ovals and gardens, cultural activities and diversity.  

I am passionate about climate action, our open spaces, protecting heritage, conservation of energy and water, sustainable transport and provision of quality services to our community.

My community activities include park re-vegetation with the Friends of South Surrey Park and volunteering with Bush Search and Rescue Victoria as the Convener and a searcher.  

I am a keen cyclist, skier and kitesurfer.  This is my blog for kitesurfing and ski touring

Lena and I completed a sustainable renovation of our Surrey Hills house in 2001, and won the City of Boroondara Sustainable Homes Gold Award in 2012 and our Permaculture garden got a Special Commendation.

I believe we should preserve the character of our distinctive suburbs, which are recognised for their many examples of fine period housing.

I have professional experience in agricultural science, information technology, systems architecture, project management and developing business strategies. I have developed and implemented project and operational plans.  I also have experience in volunteer emergency management with Bush Search and Rescue Victoria.

Our daughter attended Canterbury Primary School, I was on the CPS School Council for 3 years.

I am a member of the Boroondara Bicycle Users Group and have been working with Boroondara Council for several years to improve cycling paths and facilities for all cyclists. My favourite project is the creation of a safe family-friendly shared pedestrian and cycling path from Hawthorn to Box Hill.

Cycling with my daughter Chloe along the Hawthorn to Box Hill Trail Route 10 years ago.

I established Greenlivingpedia in 2007 - a website that anyone can contribute to - for sharing information about green living, green building and community action.

I am an independent candidate. I will serve our community on Council with persistence, dedication, honesty and integrity.

I seek your support to help build a better, more sustainable Boroondara and foster a vibrant and cohesive community.
