About the flatmates

Hi, I'm Fleur, looking for a new housemate to share with myself and one other in our beautiful, spacious and peaceful home.

About me: I work full time coordinating advocacy and communications at a not for profit mental health organisation. Outside of work, I have an active social life and often collaborate with friends to host music events in Melbourne, regional Victoria and interstate. At home, I love to use the space to unwind and relax.

I'm the lead tenant at the property and sublet the two other bedrooms. I've lived in the property for seven years and over that time I've carefully furnished the shared areas of the house and invested in high quality and energy efficient appliances throughout.

Respect for others, social justice, human rights, climate consciousness and acceptance of others are all important values to me and it would be wonderful to share with like-minded people.

I also have a very cute and well behaved fluffy cat, Puddington, who will probably want to be your friend.

My housemate Jay co-runs a small IT consultacy business and is also developing a career in voice acting. Jay does some work from home but is often out and about as well. He has a lovely young grey tabby cat, Bean Beanie, and they are both fantastic housemates!

It's important to Jay and me that our house feels like a real home. Finding someone who is very comfortable with honest and open communication, who shares some of our interests and who also loves animals would be a real bonus!
