After spending a quarter of a lifetime in Brisbane, it was time for something different. I have visited Melbourne a number of times over the years and always loved it for its thriving design community and inspired cuisine. So I packed up my stuff, said goodbye to my friends and made the drive across two states. In some ways it feels like a chance for a fresh start. I have been living in Fitzroy North for two weeks now and haven’t looked back. Here’s to new beginnings!
