Thank you so much for visiting my website. Here you’ll find out about the issues that our community cares about and what we’re doing to make Victoria a great place to live.

When I was elected to the Senate, I committed to listening to locals and doing everything I can to improve our community. I’m working to shine a light on the issues that affect working Victorians, to put social justice issues front and centre and to work towards fairness for all.

After seven years of a Liberal National Government, local families are doing it tough. Private health insurance premiums are up. Child care fees are up. Wages are low and unemployment is on the rise.

We need to see real action to stop wage theft, tackle homelessness and help keep health services affordable.

My background

I was appointed as the 100th Senator for Victoria in the Australian Parliament on 6 March 2019

Before that, I represented retail and fast food workers, helped 7-Eleven employees who were underpaid wages and fought to protect fair pay and conditions for workers.

I am the proud son of Italian migrants and have lived in Melbourne’s south eastern suburbs my whole life. I went to a local Catholic primary school and then attended Salesian College for my secondary years. After school, I studied at Deakin University and the University of Melbourne.

I’m a passionate supporter of the Collingwood Football Club, and proud to sponsor Deakin Cricket Club and the Ringwood Football and Netball Club.
