My name is Wilson Tucker, and I'm the Independent Member for the Mining and Pastoral Region in the Parliament of Western Australia.
I was born in Geraldton and I spent my childhood living in regional Western Australia. I completed a degree in Computer Science, majoring in Software Engineering, at Edith Cowan University, and I undertook an exchange programme at Carleton University in Canada.
After University, I worked as a software engineer for several private technology companies in Western Australia. Later, I moved to Seattle in the United States where, for four years, I held senior management roles at both Amazon and Expedia Group.
I am committed to regional-first initiatives, including affordable and accessible housing and indigenous rights and recognition.
Outside of politics, I enjoy sport climbing and trail running in Western Australia’s remote and far-flung places.
I am currently a member of the WA Parliament's Public Administration Committee.
