Producer • Documentary Maker • Music Programmer • Presenter
I'm an experienced presenter but I've discovered and explored many aspects of creating audio during the last three years at the University of Westminster and throughout my freelance career.
As well as producing live radio I have discovered a love for short-form documentary making and audio drama. My documentary 'Eurovision: Can we ever win again?' was awarded the Graham S Brand Memorial Prize for Best Short Multimedia Documentary.
Whether it be music, news, current affairs, drama or other forms of storytelling, it’s always been radio first and foremost for me.
There was always a radio playing at home. Radio 2 in the kitchen for breakfast and tea. In the car for short and long journeys. In the workshop or the farm. Radio was a huge part of my childhood.
As soon as I owned my first set I began to explore different stories and very different music. The Great 208 under my bedsheets. Junior Choice on a Saturday morning. The Top 40 on a Sunday night. Taping my favourite songs on my Winthronics cassette recorder. C30, C60, C90 GO! Disco. Reggae. Punk. New Wave. New Romantic. Hiphop. Rock. House.
