I am Australian (41) and live and work in Sydney, where I was born and bred. I work full time for a New South Wales Government department as a Project/Policy Officer and have previously worked as a media analyst. I love books (life would be incomplete without them), music, media and current affairs/politics. I have been to New York City twice (1999 and 2000) and adored it, so a re-visit is long overdue! I am very excited about coming back and exploring more of what “the Big Apple” has to offer late May-early June 2013.
Apart from New York, thus far my travels have included Japan, Vietnam, Turkey, Iceland, United Kingdom, Ireland, Italy, France, Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Austria, and Finland, Spain and Denmark very briefly. And, of course, parts of Australia, including the beautiful Kangaroo Island and catching a total solar eclipse in Cairns, North Queensland last November! As many Australians do, I also lived in London on a working holiday from late 1999 to early 2002.
On my future wish list is exploring more of the US, including the Deep South (for its blues/rock n’ roll music history and civil rights history), China, seeing the Northern Lights and chasing another solar eclipse at some point!
