Melbourne is regularly named as one of the world’s most ‘livable cities’.

TENANT documents and celebrates the life and times of Melbourne, Australia – by profiling its varied, unique, passionate and talented residents.

Read about people you might see on the street: what they do, the suburbs they choose to live and work in, what they enjoy about Melbourne and how they contribute to Melbourne’s marvellous cultural tapestry.

Profiles are published monthly, with Melbourne streets images more regularly – although breaking my ankle has slowed things down a bit earlier this year!



Born and raised in Melbourne, Australia, Ella realised how special her hometown was after stints living and working interstate and abroad.

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

Ella studied psychology and sociology at university before transitioning into a communications degree.

She has worked with creative teams and talent at ABC TV for Sunday Arts, George Negus Tonight, Secret Recipes, and on the feature film Ned Kelly. She has programmed film content for ABC Radio 774 review and the Melbourne Fringe Festival. Her corporate communications and campaign work includes work with, and for The Alannah and Madeline Foundation, Iloura VFX and Animation,  Film Victoria, Ford, Telstra,  SPAA and the AFI.

When Ella is not working or blogging she enjoys all the good things – including laughter, road trips, thunder storms and a well-penned greeting card.
