Jacob Anson

Planner, government relations, and Project Manager in Brisbane, Australia

I am a Brisbane-based social and environmental planner and 2016 Queensland Young Planner of the Year.

I work at the Brisbane Lions Football Club, leading infrastructure, strategy and government relations projects for one of Australia's most iconic sporting teams. I previously spent eight years as an executive at the Australian Football League in Queensland.

Currently a Master of Economics and Public Policy student at UQ, I hold a Master of Urban and Environmental Planning degree from Griffith University and a Bachelor of Science in Conservation Ecology from the University of Melbourne. I serve locally as a Justice of the Peace.

I'm passionate about family, community, urban design, outdoor recreation, travel and better politics.

I live in leafy Lutwyche with my wife, Nadine, and our six-year-old collie, Wally.
