Originally from Canada, and now have been living in Sydney for several years. I'm working in the energy and carbon management field for an Australian management consultancy.
I've embraced car sharing for many years - not owning a car, and hiring through a local car share organisation when needed. I see airbnb as a similar concept for accomodation - a great idea whose time has come.
Travel wise, I enjoy trips that have equal measures of urban and countryside. A combination of bush walks, cycling and remote beaches along with great food, architecture, and art.
