Chris is a third generation construction worker and has worked in this field for over 15 years. He was born in Adelaide, South Australia. Chris and his wife of 17 years, and two children call the Sunshine Coast home.
A committed family man, Chris often worked away in order to provide for his family.
In 2015 Chris and his Wife established a mental health charity, Bamboo Projects Education, to assist people with mental illness through outdoor therapies. Through this charity, he has learnt first-hand the need for further mental health support in the community. Chris and his team of volunteers have assisted people in the community through outdoor activities such as cleaning up the waterways, fishing and hiking. This provides a sense of connection to the local area and allows for people to give back to the community. The tools can be given to people to get their lives back on track, whilst being in a comfortable environment to discuss their concerns.
Chris believes he will excel in representing the seat of Fisher as he is focused on taking action to get the best result for the community.
Chris is committed to working in partnership with the local community to support their dreams and visions for the Fisher electorate. It is through small grass-root organisations that the biggest impact can be made due to their persistent passion for their cause.
It is through Chris’s work commitments, the challenges and triumphs in founding a charity, raising two children and supporting his wife through her career; that he believes he has what it takes to be a representative of the people of Fisher.
Chris is taking a stand for what he believes in for the generations to come after his children. This is why he has put his hand up to run for the seat of Fisher in the upcoming election with Pauline Hanson’s One Nation; as he believes they are the only party that is committed to making a change for the people.
