Candidate for Bennelong, NSW
I have a deep belief that the arts are central to a healthy community at all levels of activity, from the street to the concert hall; and central to the mental, spiritual, and emotional balance of a healthy individual.
I have a wide experience across the musical arts - orchestral concert, orchestral recording, bands - as well as film, ballet and theatre, mixing with musicians and film makers on an almost daily basis from the amateur community level to the elite professionals.
I have a strong desire to see education raised to a position of importance in Australia.
I want to see a more humane and compassionate approach to the needy and disadvantaged, and to the plight of asylum seekers.
I will serve with passion and dedication if elected.
