Adrian has served as the Councillor for Chandler Ward since September 2005 and in this presentation he gives support to Italian Week.
He is a true Brisbane local who was born here and grew-up in the south eastern suburbs. He went to school locally at Christian Outreach College (now Citipointe College), based on Wecker Road.
As a teenager, Adrian's passion was flying and he spent many years working in his family's small business to help fund flying lessons. He flew a light aircraft solo for the first time at the age of 17.
Adrian served briefly in the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) before his strong sense of community motivated him to get involved in local government.
Prior to his election he also worked as an advisor to various Local and Federal Government elected representatives.
