Hi – my name is Ella and I live in Melbourne a southern Australian city that is regularly named as one of the world’s ‘most liveable cities’.

Through monthly long-form profiles and short-form mini street interviews I document and celebrates the life and times of Melbourne, Australia.

Some of these people are my friends and others I have been recommended to meet or introduced to via reader emails.

Profiles are published monthly, with Melbourne street images more regularly. I would love to publish more regularly but full-time work sometimes gets in the way!



Often curious about human behaviour and culture, Ella studied psychology and sociology at university before transitioning into a communications degree.

In her early career Ella worked in TV production and works as a creative communications consultant and project manager. In her time she has worked on projects for ABC TV, Melbourne Fringe Festival, The Alannah and Madeline Foundation, Iloura VFX and Animation,  Film Victoria, SPA and the AFI.

Ella started TENANT  in 2012 to celebrate her friends and her community, and aspects of her professional life from which she draws inspiration, knowledge and pleasure.

When Ella is not working or blogging she enjoys, belly laughs, gardening, road-trips, thunder storms and a well-penned greeting card.
