Former programmer and Murdoch Molecular Biology grad looking for work (or possibly post-grad study) so you need to be ok with someone unemployed (though very financially responsible) and at home a lot, at least until I get more work (can be a bonus if you want your place/pet/garden constantly looked after!). I also come with an old, female, house-trained cat who mostly just sleeps on my bed and hides from strangers - you seriously won't know she's even there, most of the time, so to the "no pets" people - please consider.
Fantastic rent history (never missed a payment in my life and often left places better than I found them), clean and tidy, bit of an academic/nerd, don't smoke, drink or do drugs and not looking for a "party house". Am a competitive powerlifter (National and Oceania champ in my age and weight category) and usually train 3 nights a week, enjoy bird/nature photography, an extremely eclectic range of music, board-gaming and learning new things. When not training at my mate's place or walking around a lake somewhere, I'm glued to my PC or reading.
Non-religious and mostly left-wing politics. Not a vegan/vegetarian, but sympathetic to it (have cut down meat to chicken and fish). Green friendly, enviro/energy conscious. Honest, empathetic, try to maintain open and calm communication for sorting out any potential issues/conflicts, do my fair share of chores. Good at DIY and fixing things, have a bunch of tools and can often help with maintenance/repairs and trouble-shooting of tech/electronics, mechanical things, etc.
Enjoy the occasional discussion or shared dinner, but don't need to be best friends with a housemate, as I value my own space and privacy. At the minimum just require the mutual respect/consideration that makes living with someone else tolerable, and anything above that is a nice bonus :)
Drop me a line if you think I'd make a good tenant or you're looking for someone to share with in my preferred areas, or even outside of them if you think we'd make particularly good housemates. Cheers.
