What do you want to get out of joining this group?

Meet up with some Aussies. The last one I met was at the dog beach in Evanston & she was doing a short stint at Northwestern. We seem to be few & far between. I currently am working with a Kiwi, so at least we can hang shite on each other & neither is offended ... particularly when we notice a slight US accent!

Tell us about yourself and your connection with the Land Downunder

A Perth boy who has been in the States since 2005. Thought I'd only be here 3 years & about 18 months in I met my now wife & now have a couple of young kids. I started out in NYC & ended up on a project in Chicago where I met my now wife. I'm a CA, though for a long time I have been a business consultant. I came to the States with a Big 4 firm, but have now found a great firm who focuses on no travel & having a great work/life balance. Who would have thought!
