I like musing on this ‘figure-eight': people define a city and a city defines its people. 

Through short-form street conversations and long-form home interviews TENANT documents and celebrates the life and times of Melbourne through its interesting, varied and accomplished residents.



Blogger, is such an ugly word! Ugh. But, I guess that is what I am….a  part-time blogger?

I started TENANT  in 2012 to celebrate my clever friends, their clever friends, and clever strangers I meet inbetween.

When I am not working or blogging I love many o’ middle-class trapping including great food and dinning out with friends, musing art and design in galleries (and on blogs). Good film, singing in the car, road-trips in the desert, thunder storms, and a well-penned greeting card.

Say hello!  tenantmag@gmail.com
