Candidate for the Electorate of Berowra, NSW
I joined the Science Party (then the Future Party) in 2015 with the dreams of bringing science and technology to the forefront of Australian Government policy. I ran as a candidate in the 2016 and 2019 Federal Election (Berowra) and the NSW Legislative Council.
I was drawn to the Science Party by its principles and focus on developing policy through the scientific method. Through these principles, innovative policies are created, tested and improved as new evidence becomes available.
Now, I believe that Australians are ready to embrace those same dreams.
The Liberals last year introduced legislation in an attempt to kill minor parties. They have attacked our democracy and we have fought back by merging with other like minded parties. We are stronger than ever in becoming Fusion.
I am not content with Australia just having a place in the world, but see Australia as a potential world leader in science, education, innovation and healthcare.
Australia should be the country that the world looks to as a beacon of success. For a free culture, open democracy and real climate action, vote Fusion: Science, Pirate, Secular, Climate Emergency.
