History in Eurovision


The first Eurovision I watched was in 2004 when I saw Ruslana win with ‘Wild Dances’ for Ukraine.  Ever since then I followed Eurovision gradually and not realising that many songs I that I have enjoyed over the years came from Eurovision, including many of the classics that we hear today.  It wasn’t until I met my beautiful partner Aaron that I became more involved.  Watching Jessica Mauboy on TV representing Australia as the interval act in Copenhagen.  I knew then that we would be going to Vienna the very next year and I have been hooked ever since then.


Current Activities


I’m currently a primary member of OGAE Rest of World and participate in their many online activities and attend events held in the host cities.  I’m also a secondary member of OGAE Australia and attend many events as well as volunteer my assistance.  In my other spare time I’m a Board member and  Marketing Manager of the Tramway Museum Society of Victoria Inc and assist with running of this volunteer organisation and the operation of their Tramway Heritage Centre in Bylands, Victoria.


My biggest project is the establishment of this group, the Eurovision Guide.  It’s a working progress that I hope to evolve and provide much needed Eurovision travel advice and information to all those who love Eurovision.

History in Eurovision


My first recollection of Eurovision is going back longer than most of my friends (I'm not a teenie bopper anymore). 1993 – the start of the Irish treble in Millstreet, the little village outside in County Cork putting up the Big Top in the middle of a field for all of Europe to see. The thought of sitting up in my bedroom with my little television, in the middle of the night, watching the songs in languages that I didn’t understand brings back memories. As time has rolled on, my enthusiasm has slowly gotten stronger, and friends more scared around this time of the year (especially when I start singing out loud with my headphones in, listening to the entries).


Current Activities


Involvement in Eurovision has not only been in attending the host countries, I am currently the Vice President of OGAE Australia (the Australia Eurovision Fan Club) and have been on the Board for nearly 2 years. In my current role, I assist with the administration of the Fan Club and host various functions, held around Australia, to celebrate the world’s favourite and biggest Song Contest.

History in Eurovision


The first time I ever watched Eurovision, I was actually in the arena! This was 2002 in Tallinn to be exact, where I happened to spending a few months for a work placement. Back in those days YouTube wasn’t around yet, nor was information as accessible as it is now. So the show was also the very first time I heard the songs of that year. From then on, Eurovision has been an obsession for me. My second one was in 2007, when Helsinki hosted. I was living in Finland then, so I was never going to miss the chance to attend in my adopted country. Since then, I’ve been to Eurovision several times with my partner William, whom I’m afraid is becoming more obsessed with it than I am!


Current Activities


I am a primary member of OGAE Rest of World as well as a secondary member of OGAE Australia. I work full time, but still try to give my hobbies some attention too. My main one is music! I play the harp, with many Eurovision songs in my repertoire, of course:) I also love travel and the planning of it. Given the combination of those two main interests, my love for Eurovision is explained quite well.
