What's your current postcode?

Can you describe your adopted hometown in three words?
Sunny cosmopolitan carpark

If I had 24 hours in your city, what are the absolute must-dos?
Morning hike at Runyon Canyon or Griffith Park, lunch in Downtown LA, drive to Malibu along PCH, pop into The Getty Museum, dinner at El Coyote.

What's the best piece of advice you have for someone moving overseas?
Be patient and don't beat yourself up when you're feeling a bit out of sorts or homesick. It happens and will re-occur from time to time.

What do you miss most about Australia?
The more relaxed lifestyle (more vacation days please!), AFL, horse racing... and my family and friends of course!

What’s a piece of gold from your new city that you will take home with you?
If you have a goal you are trying to achieve, then value yourself, back yourself, and "sell" yourself because no one is going to come looking for you.

Where to next?
I'm approaching 50 (well, a few years away!) so am contemplating the "next phase" but haven't quite figured out what that is yet...
