Q&A

Meet Mark Howard

Where are you from and how did you end up in Melbourne?  

I'm originally from Dublin, Ireland. My journey to Melbourne was facilitated through my recruitment career. At that point my girlfriend (now wife) and I both worked for a reputable specialist firm in Sydney. We both managed to acquire opportunities within the business that brought us to Melbourne. That was 6 years ago and the rest is history.

Meet Leeza Young

Where are you from and how did you end up in Melbourne?

I was born and bred in Christchurch, New Zealand. I left not long after the Christchurch Earthquakes as I wanted to explore a bigger, more fast-paced city. Melbourne seemed like the perfect choice and four years later, my spontaneous decision to book a one-way flight has paid off!

Meet Andrew Medard

What is your background and where are you from?

I’m from Melbourne and grew up in Forest Hill in Melbourne’s east. I’ve recently been living in Laos due to my wife’s work, and I’ve also lived in London and Sydney for several years. That said, I’ve lived in Melbourne for most of my life and it will always be home. In terms of my ancestry, my father was born in Kaunas, Lithuania and moved to Melbourne via Canberra when he was 13 years old and my mother is Australian and grew up in Ormond.
