Hi, I'm Jason.
I've called South Yarra home for more than 10 years and I’m proud to be part of our compassionate, diverse and environmentally conscious Higgins community.
As a social enterprise founder and a campaigner for equality, I’ve spent my life championing bold reform and standing up for those without a voice.
In 2017, I was named Victoria’s Young Australian of the Year for my work with Pride Cup – a grassroots not-for-profit I grew into an award-winning national movement to promote LGBTIQ inclusion in sport.
With a background in youth mental health government relations, I’m an ambassador for beyondblue and VicHealth, and a proud member of Rotary Prahran, where I mentor children from refugee backgrounds in their homework club.
I believe the people of Higgins want a representative in Canberra who will stand up for their values, push for strong action on climate change and seek a more humane approach to people seeking asylum.
Building on the success of our incredible 2016 people-powered campaign—which turned Higgins into the first ever federal Greens-Liberal marginal contest in the country—we are so close to making history and transforming the political landscape for generations to come.
Together we can create a cleaner, fairer, more hopeful future for all of us. Can I count on you?
