Family is important to me.

From the love and care my mum showed towards my twin brother and I - to the love I have for my wife and children. I am driven to stand up for working  and middle class families.

Growing up in the suburbs,
I watched as my mum made sacrifices.

She saved to put my twin brother and I through school and herself through university.

She made sacrifices to pay for the things that are important.

Things like health, education, and a good job.

That’s why I have spent my adult life standing up for working people, and I always will.

My wife Chloe and I have three wonderful kids: Georgette, Rupert and Clementine. I love being a dad and I love spending time with my family, especially on Saturdays when I become a bus driver shuttling them all from a sport lesson here to a
ballet lesson there.

Chloe, the kids, and I - also love our two pet British Bulldogs and honorary family members Theodore and Matilda.

My wife and I want the best for our kids and everyone else’s too.

Family is important to me. I want the best for my family and all middle class and working class families across Australia.

That's what drives me.
