Why I’m running
I have been proud to represent my neighbours from the suburbs of Epsom, Mt Eden, Greenlane, Newmarket, Parnell, and Remuera for the past six years. Our community is aspirational, we have 30 schools in an area of only 20 square kilometres, and a large proportion of entrepreneurs. I seek to represent the values of the Epsom electorate in parliament. While constituency work is private and rarely reported, I particularly enjoy advocating for local people when they are underserved by Government.
My background is working as an electrical engineer, for private sector think-tanks as a policy analyst and, for the last six years, representing Epsom in parliament. I first moved to the electorate as a thirteen-year-old to attend school. Since then, I have barely left except for my OE in Canada. My values are commercial and aspirational. A welcoming tax and regulatory environment for doing business means we can support first world social services and be good custodians of our natural environment.
