I’m an amateur cook and heavy music lover.

How did you become involved in the station?

I volunteered in the phone room for Radiothon a few years ago and then did admin duties for a bit while I was at uni.

I love music and going out to gigs, and playing music on the radio was something that I’ve always wanted to try doing but it took me a while to get around to it. Last year I finally took the plunge and did the RTRFM radio training course.

If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?

  • Veruca Salt – Eight Arms to Hold You (it was the first ‘alternative’ album that I bought and something I always go back to listening and never tire of)
  • Tool – Anema (I named everything about myself after a Tool song – Blue Apocalypse)
  • Tied & Tickled Trio – Observing Systems (my perfect jazz album)
  • Colditz Glider – Properties of Light (I recently rediscovered it in my CD collection and I’m always blown away by how good it is when I listen to it)
  • Caribou – Swim (something to dance to)

What is the best thing about being involved in the station?

The freedom to play the music that I like and sharing it with listeners.

What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?

I meet some strange but lovely people during changeovers for the graveyard shifts. I mean we must be pretty strange for voluntarily staying up/waking up at ridiculous hours of the morning to present on RTRFM right?

If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?

Music + Food = Life. I’ve always wanted to combine the two and now in someway I have being a part of The Food Alternative.

I also love filling in for Drivetime as I get to play a bit of everything.

What do you do in real life?

Make shit happen.
