I've been a "quiet Australian" for most of my life, opting to avoid the circus of Australian politics where finger-pointing and back-stabbing is the norm. The current government that is meant to be representing the average Aussie is doing a horrible job and the people deserve alternatives. That's why I'm running for the Senate.

I value a thriving ecology and coexistence with nature by focusing on making technological advancements without continuing the detrimental impact on our environment. I value the freedom for an individual to live their best life, however they see that being, so long as it doesn't have a direct negative impact on the freedoms of others and without excessive government surveillance. I value culture and believe that sharing of information for the betterment of the community should be prioritised over share price. I value truth, transparency and open governance.

I'm not a career politician, and I don't have friends in the mining industry. I represent the kind of person who wants a government that knows what it's like to be them. Someone who won't take a Hawaiian holiday while the country is on fire or spend taxpayer dollars on tanks during a global pandemic. Someone who will advocate equality of opportunity. Someone who's not in the pocket of industry or religious donors. Someone who is able to balance the needs of the land with those of the economy.

I truly believe the Fusion Party has the best policies to see Australia into a bright future.

For a free culture, open democracy and real climate action, vote Fusion: Science, Pirate, Secular, Climate Emergency.
