I am Jules. I am 29, an environmental lawyer and campaign manager with the Wilderness Society - a national environmental campaigning organisation.
I grew up in Cronulla Beach in Sydney but I am relocating to Melbourne this year for my job and to be closer to my boyfriend Sammy (who is an outdoor education teacher in the country 2 hours out of Melbourne - I would be visiting him a few days a week in his house up there, and probably most weekends).
I am a very active adventurous person, and my whole life is about exploring the outdoors. At the moment I am into whitewater kayaking and so in spring time I will be paddling all the amazing rivers that Victoria has to offer like the Mitta Mitta and Mitchell! I love going bushwalking too, on overnight trips and camping under the stars. I haven't done much walking in Victoria so I would be keen to explore places like Wilson's Prom and the high country. In winter, I am into backcountry skiing and camping in the snow. Any of these adventures I would be happy to take house mates on if they are keen!
In everyday life I am into playing sports (I will probably play AFL or Canoe Polo or something for fun in Melbourne), canyoning, running, climbing, mountain biking and doing hot power yoga. I also love to learn guitar, sing, make things out of leather, vege garden, and learn more about how to live sustainably. I love seeing live music and going to interesting talks and events where I can learn things and meet new people. I would like to maybe volunteer my legal skills at the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (I have had a background working in the aid and development/refugee sector as well as the environment sector).
I am really sociable, laid back and friendly and love to have dinner parties or just make dinner for people every now and then and learn to cook new things. I love hanging out and taking the time to get to know people. I don't watch much TV but do love watching kayaking movies and adventure docos.
I have a busy life with my job, adventure stuff and hobbies, and I also travel interstate for work - so I would be out and about quite a bit. However, I do love investing in creating a nice home atmosphere in a share house. I have share housed with people for 6 years in Canberra and always loved it and my house mates are some of my best friends now.
I am rafting the Franklin River in Tasmania from 29 October to 9 November. I am looking to move down to Melbourne after that sometime in November.
Julie is also interested in Teaming-Up and starting a new share house.
