Having grown up on the Gold Coast with his dad a small business owner and starting his working life in the Gold Coast hospitality and tourism sector, Ash knows the importance of supporting local businesses and the need for secure jobs.
With extensive experience in industrial relations, today Ash represents workers and their families, as a Senior Legal and Industrial Officer for one of Australia’s peak aviation organisations, to secure better wages, conditions and safety at work.
As a father of two young girls, he understands families are doing it tough because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Palaszczuk Government's strong health response to COVID-19 means we can focus on our economic recovery for Gold Coast families.
This means building the roads and transport infrastructure the growing Gold Coast needs to create jobs and future-proof the region.
Ash is passionate about young people having access to training and ensuring families have access to quality healthcare and education services.
