About Me

Thames has been my home for 48 years

I’m deeply concerned about the cost of living, the housing crisis, accessible public transport and climate action

I ask the hard questions, hold agencies and officials to account, and determinedly pursue practical solutions

I have a long track record of successful advocacy and activism

A law I promoted 20 years ago still protects our beaches and forests from mining

I was a law professional for 45 years

I’m a strong voice for effective climate action

I’m a father and a grandfather and I work tirelessly to create a better future for current and future generations
