About Me
I am a psychologist, conducting research into the factors that help primary and secondary schools provide more fulfilling opportunities for their staff. I have travelled extensively and prefer staying in homes (rather than hotels). I have a few apartments in East Melbourne and one in St Kilda which I offer to guests via Sabbatical Homes. I have provided a Melbourne home to over 100 Sabbatical Homes guests over the last 10 years.
