Born and raised on a dairy farm in the Western District of Victoria, Craig relocated to Far North Queensland with his wife Rosalie in 2008 for the warmer tropical climate and spectacular landscape.
 

Prior to entering politics, Craig worked as an Ambulance Paramedic for 15 years. He has also dabbled in owning and running small businesses, and volunteered as a firefighter from the age of 17.

 

Craig was the regional representative for United Voice union whilst working as a paramedic in Cairns where he represented paramedics and emergency helicopter flight crews from Cardwell to Thursday Island. 
 

A keen gardener and handy-man, Craig often has several home renos on the go. Craig can also be found caravanning and exploring FNQ with his wife Rosalie and beloved King Charles Cavalier, Flik and Sulley.
