I have a fabulous job as a Set Decorator in the Film and TV industry. This means I am out shopping most days or dressing sets from all eras and areas in Melbourne. I love to share my knowledge of good shops/cafes/restaurants/galleries with my friends and guests.
The garden I have created is very edible and produces crops of tasty veggies which I feast on most nights, guests are free to help themselves and perhaps do a little watering!
I am not a big regular TV watcher, enjoying box sets of shows like Dexter, Mad Men, Weeds, Veep. I enjoy lots of different music: dub, reggae, jazz, alt country, retro, 70's…. and tend to listen to a lot of Radio National shows, big fan of This American Life.
Melbourne has lots of great art shows and I regularly get out and look.
I eat out often and can guide guests towards the yummiest cafes and restaurants to be had, either close by or all over the city.
Originally from NZ, I have made Melbourne my home and am enjoying travelling to different spots in Australia…Port Douglas being the last great escape, with some time at the amazing Paronella Park just south of Cairns.
I am pretty chilled and enjoy a good chat.
My fav new hobby is Ping Pong…got a great table in my garage, which can be used outside in summer.
