I'm Matthew. I hail from Ireland and will be moving over to Melbourne in mid September. Since finishing my engineering degree 3 years ago, I've been working as an energy engineer in Dublin, Ireland. My plan is to work within my profession Monday - Friday and enjoy taking weekends off.
My first love is music. Listening, dancing, even playing some. It doesn't matter. I'll talk about it until the cows (kangaroos over here?) come home. I'll listen to anything although I haven't a clue what's hot in the charts; I prefer more old school stuff, house and Irish trad music.
Coming in a close second would be the great outdoors. I love surfing (not saying I'm good at it, just passionate about it), hiking and cycling. I heard Melbourne is a cycling friendly city which I'm delighted with! Even a walk in the park with a frisbee is sweet. Just being outside and with nature is the best.
Last but by no means least, I love to bake/cook. I'll try anything new so long as it doesn't poison me and I spend long periods in the kitchen figuring out / prepping meals and cleaning up after of course.
I love socialising and trying new things, keeps my mind healthy. I'm mad into sustainability and looking after our environment whenever I can i.e recycling and re-using. I'm hoping to find a place that thinks about looking after our little planet too.
It's difficult to determine if I'm the right fit for a place just going by this, everybody will say they want to live with people that are easy going and always clean up after themselves. I'll be happy to live with people that enjoy the things I like stated above. Everything else will fall into place after.
I have temporary accommodation in Melbourne until November 9th. I'm looking to find a place from November for another 8 months. I'll be available to take any viewings all day; I'll be searching for a new job while I look for accommodation. Bye for now.
