I’ve lived in Melbourne for 30 years
I speak English
I am Editor/Writer/Journalist
I have lived in Melbourne for 30 years having moved here from Canada in the late 1980s. l fell in love with the city immediately on arrival and have watched with interest as it has grown and developed over the years into what is now a truly world-class city. I have plenty of experience as a traveller having travelled the world extensively throughout my life whether that be travelling on my own, with my family or with my wife. As well, for over seven years I worked as an editor, senior manager and writer for Lonely Planet Publications, which included writing the first and second editions of the LP Vancouver City Guide. I believe this personal and professional travel experience has given me a very good understanding of what goes into making a traveller's visit to a city inspiring, memorable and, most important of all, fun, no matter what their budget might be. With a range of interests that spans the arts, food & drink, history, music, markets, film, sports and the great outdoors, I believe I can tailor the perfect experience for just about anyone. Add to this my love of meeting new people, sharing great experiences and an innate desire to have fun, I believe I can help to make your visit to Melbourne an experience that will be cherished for a lifetime.
