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 originally started off as  a primary member of OGAE Rest of World and participated in their many online activities and attended events held in the host cities.  Until the 1st of September 2019, I was a  secondary member of OGAE Australia and attended many events as well as volunteered my assistance.  For a short period of time, I served as the President of OGAE Australia.  Thus now becoming a Primary Member of the Fan Club.


Also somewhere in my 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.   All the design work is a big hobby for myself and I hope you do enjoy how it is presented.

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.
