I’m a bit of a media all-rounder. I studied Communications at ECU, Mt Lawley. Worked at Channels Nine and Seven in operations and on-camera, respectively. Freelanced for X-Press Magazine and The West Australian. Kickstarted my own magazine Cream. Studied radio at Central TAFE and RTRFM. Blogged here and there. And am now enjoying the exciting world of media convergence that’s a-happenin’ all around me!

How did you become involved in the station?

I’ve been a fan of RTRFM for some time. Indeed I first tuned in to the station sometime between the Paleolithic and Polystyrene Epochs – back when it was dubbed 6RTR. I’ve loved the station’s ethos of diversity and progressiveness ever since. Only this year I decided to do a short course, hosted by the splendid Sarah Tout, after which I began co-hosting All Things Queer, paneling Up Late and reading da news. And I loves it all.

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

  • Laurie Anderson – Strange Angels
  • Scritti Politti – Cupid & Psyche ’85
  • The Beatles – Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
  • Suede – Head Music
  • Tori Amos – To Venus and Back

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

Being in the midst of intelligence, artistry, brilliance and diversity.

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

During my first Up Late I went to raise the back of my chair and it fell right off with me balancing precariously as I cross-faded from one track to a station ID to another track. Ultimately it felt like I’d pulled off my first circus trick!

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

Siamese Dream because I’d enjoy revisiting various genres of the ’90s from indie rock to trip-hop and have very good knowledge of the decade since it were the halcyon days of my music reviewing and publishing.

What do you do in real life?

Write profiles, reviews and features in various fields: music, fashion, film, performance and visual arts, tech trending, etc.
