After our recent callout for a Sydney curator, we were lucky enough to find the amazing and super-social Hannah DeMilta. Hannah will be sharing the best events, meetups, community news, jobs and more in each fortnight’s fetch. You can submit items to her via email here and don’t forget to subscribe on Our next pink-themed fetch will be sent on 26 September. We welcome her to fetch land with some questions!

How did you end up where you are today?

I’m originally from Cleveland, Ohio but fell in love with Australia and knew I had to come live here. I was working for a startup after graduation, then landed my current job with Switched on Media on Twitter and moved to Sydney. Now I get to work and play in this lovely city. I love soaking up everything Sydney has to offer.

What makes you tick? What makes you ick?

People make tick. I’m driven by relationships and helping others. Other ‘tick tocks’ include travel, tennis, tweeting, good eats and drinks with friends. My ick is rude people and black olives. I love so many different flavours, but those olives are yucky. And rude people, they’re yucky too.

Why do you love fetchin’?

I love fetchin because it’s all about connecting others and getting people together. Business, creative and digital events aren’t meant to be work, they’re meant to be fun. If that hasn’t been your experience, you’re hanging out at the wrong events my friend.

What things excite you about our community right now?

I get really excited about some of the arts and creative focused communities in Sydney. While I work in digital and I’m constantly learning in that field, it’s the events with a creative slant that help inspire me. In fact, if you’re headed to an interesting arts related event, please invite me along.

What’s your favourite thing about your city?

I love that Sydney is a huge city with so much to do, but can still feel small and connected. Everyone here is somehow seems tied to one another and it’s not uncommon to run into a friend down at the pub.

Where can we find you in Sydney?

You can find me having brunch in Surry Hills, enjoying a flat white.
