Having been born and raised in Shepparton, I have a great passion and appreciation for our region and what makes it so special.

I attended school in Greater Shepparton, play football for a local team, built my career and am now raising my three wonderful children here alongside my wife Lirie.

I started my career in telecommunications and later joined our family business to further advance my business skill set across our three retails stores. Having worked in the industry for many years, I understand the true importance of the community supporting our local business sector and ensuring investment and economic growth continue within the industry.  

I am committed to the Goulburn Valley community, in particular my Albanian heritage, having sat on the Shepparton Albanian Society for the past 13 years. I appreciate the strength of the multicultural community who call Greater Shepparton home and I recognise how fortunate we are to have such a diverse and unique history right here in our region.

Since being elected to Council in 2020 I have learnt a great deal about local government and the needs and desires of our residents. I was fortunate enough to be elected to Mayor in 2022 for a two-year term.

Throughout my time as Mayor the region has faced extreme hardship with the ongoing effects of the pandemic and the October 2022 floods, which saw hundreds of homes inundated with flood waters. While these experiences were extremely tough for the entire region, it was a true honour to lead the community through its immediate response and ongoing recovery. The strength and resilience shown by residents during this time was incredible, and for that the community should be so proud

I look forward to seeing what can be achieved in the coming years to continue the positive growth of Greater Shepparton, alongside the eight other proactive and passionate Councillors.

It is exciting times ahead for Greater Shepparton as we continue to attract investment to our region, creating a better place to raise your family and the place you are proud to call home.
