My name is Bryson Head and I am the Regional Recovery Officer for South West Queensland.
I was born and raised on a mixed grain and beef enterprise on the Western Downs near the town of Brigalow, Queensland, and hold a Bachelor of Science (Earth Science/Geology) and a Certificate III in Agriculture.
Prior to joining the National Drought and Flood Agency I was working as a geologist in the mining industry, as well as travelling and working around farms in other countries, primarily in Canada.
I have previously been active in the Green Shirts Movement - bridging the City-Bush divide, holding the position of acting secretary and campaign manager. In this role I spent time promoting the values of the agriculture industry to the wider public and working to improve the political climate for agribusiness by lobbying for regulation and legislation changes.
I maintain a strong connection with the land and when I’m not working my day job you will find me lending a hand on the family farm.
My belief is that communication from the ground up needs to be honest, frank and unfiltered. I am committed to acting as a voice for the region and ensuring South West Queensland communities are aware of and using the programs and support available to them.
