First elected in November 2007, Scott is one of ten Australian Greens in the Federal Parliament. He is the spokesperson for Communications, Sustainable Cities, Nuclear Issues, Foreign Affairs, Defence & Veterans’ Affairs, International Aid & Development. Scott trained as a graphic designer and worked in small studios for eight years as a designer, illustrator and web developer. Inspired by the powerful leadership of Aboriginal Traditional Owners in their opposition to the Jabiluka uranium mine, Scott joined Australia’s tenacious anti-nuclear movement and found his political home in the Australian Greens. He worked four years in state politics for Robin Chapple MLC and two years for Western Australian Senator Rachel Siewert before throwing his hat over the wall in 2007 to win a place as the fifth Greens Senator to represent Western Australia.
