My favourite thing about Melbourne is its capacity to make one feel totally anonymous and insignificant. I find it so easy to sit back and admire the velocity of it all, but some part of me has incessantly felt the urge to scribble everything down. Besides, who wants to sit down for too long in this city anyway? I want to uncover the creatives of Melbourne, unwrap them and bring them to you: interior designers, fashion designers, musicians, writers and many a more. In doing so, I hope to offer inspiration and perspective for all you starving creatives out there, all the while uncovering the endless facets of Melbourne’s culture and lifestyle. In my spare time you’ll find me buried in my journal in the nook of a coffee shop, squeezing the tops of avocadoes amid a sea of nonnas at Queen Vic Market or gawking at other peoples dogs.
