About Me


To visit, to foster, to meet, to roam, to be global, and to understand folks from all different cultures and walks of life and.


Travelling is what I enjoy most, it's the mantra and framework I live my life by.

I love good food, good wine and great restaurants and bars...and of course parties.

I love the sun, like a reptile...

I'd love to provide people with the opportunity to live with me while they look around Melbourne. It would be my pleasure to show you around. There is nothing better than local knowledge, and hidden gems of a city.

I've lived in Hong Kong for 3 years, all over Australia and travelled extensively throughout the world.

Fortunately my job allows me to travel at will, within my business
lies my major passions and the two make me complete.


Life's a garden, dig it...
