I like to get out and explore new places. I'm definitely not a homebody! I've traveled much of the world, through Asia, North America, Europe and my native Australia. I'm polite and friendly - happy to have a chat to break the ice but low-maintenance and not expecting to be entertained by my hosts! Lifestyle wise, I'm environmentally minded, I read widely and I am inspired by all the amazing work people are doing to make the world work more efficiently - for example, AirBnB and Zipcar. In conversations with friends, I like discussing ideas and strategies and how to get cool projects done. If I stay with you, you could ask me about the time I was taken to court by a tobacco giant or about social entrepreneurship - a favourite topic of mine. Professionally I am a futurist - a type of consultant... My business prepares and delivers fun and engaging reports on the futures of different industries.
