About Paul Nicholson
Never though of myself as a Seniors' Card holder!I am a retired Victorian public (civil) servant now active in casual work (various tasks). It's good to be able to work in an environment that has interested me very much over the years and has taken me to many parts of the world. These days work takes me to every part of Melbourne and no two days are the same; variety is the spice of life! Things have eased off a little in 2014 but I maintain a strong work ethic doing what I enjoy.I am well travelled and enjoy visiting new places usually "looking around" on public transport with the "locals". I've been fortunate to have done many overseas trips in the past few years and look forward to many more.Separation in 2007 (and subsequent divorce) was a big life change for me and I am pleased to have met some great people in my "new life" journey. I am keen to make new friends and acquaintances to expand my network of lifelong friends around Australia and overseas.In 2009, I travelled overseas to join my mate Klaus Matzka in Vienna celebrating his 70th birthday. In 2010 I celebrated my own 60th birthday. Further overseas trips in 2012 (Singapore and New Zealand), 2013 (Hong Kong, Panama Canal and Oktoberfest in Germany) and 2014 (Hong Kong and Taiwan).I was active in community radio for many years but gave it away in 2007 to focus on re-establishing myself. It's great to be away from the politics and back stabbing that goes with community radio! I consciously avoid energy draining people and situations and sadly I experienced both in more than 15 years in community radio.I am not a big sports fan which makes it a little hard for someone who has spent all but two years of his 61 years living in Melbourne. But it has given me an inner strength when I've been able to satisfy people that I am a "good bloke" after sometimes feeling I've been initially judged as somewhat "odd" in Melbourne for not being a sports fanatic.I am very proud of my daughter Melissa who's done well in life and continue to support my son Craig who's experienced a bit of rocky road in recent years.Life is good in 2014!
