Pretty easy going and no fuss - prefer people to relax and make themselves at home - as the Spanish say 'mi casa es tu casa' (my house is your house). My interests include: visual arts and design, writing, architecture, psychology, contemporary theatre, politics (don't worry, not too much) dance/physical theatre, music of all sorts (including pop, world music, jazz, some classical but not so keen on Romantic or Modernist; et al.), movies (probably more indie and arty, but not exclusively), reading (more non-fiction than fiction these days, umm, don't know why...), beach dwelling, snow skiing, swimming and anything to do with large bodies of water :-) Travelling: have done heaps - love to travel. And love eating: South-East Asian, Indian, and Mediterranean are my favourites. And of course you can't go past Ottolenghi's middle eastern/Arabic hybrid cuisine.
Currently back at Melbourne University doing second degree (career transitioning), plus working a few days a week teaching English as a second language to mature aged students at Victoria University to fund my education habit.
Speak passable tourist German, French and Spanish (Deutch, Francais und/et/y Espanol)
