I’ve been a music and arts journalist for nine years. For the past four years I’ve been the Editor of independent arts guide, SixThousand , for whom I’m written thousands upon thousands of words, and organised a few film screenings and parties. I’ve had my writing appear in Vice, Acclaim, The Music, Oyster, Dazed Digital, The Blackmail and more. Formerly I was the Club Music Editor at X-Press Magazine and a monthly club music columnist for Drum Media. I also work part time as the Marketing & Publicity Manager for Barking Gecko Theatre Company, and at Oxford Street Bookshop.
How did you become involved?
Six years ago I was a weekly co-host (alongside Rex Monsoon and Petrosex) on Monday late night program Pocket Disco , which the boys and I extended the show into real life vis a vis Love Saves Fridays, a weekly disco night at Republic. Throughout the past two years I’ve become more and more involved in RTRFM, as a regular host on Disco Science (with Jack Doepel) and Golden Apples of The Sun . I’ve also been lucky enough to be a regular fill-in presenter on Out To Lunch, and do the odd Full Frequency show. I’m super excited to head my own show collective in 2014 – Cloudwaves.
If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?

- Aaliyah – One in a Million
- Clams Casino – Instrumentals Vol. 1
- Burial – Untrue
What is the best thing about being involved with the station?
I love the opportunity RTRFM gives you to share your enthusiasm for music with your fellow Perth music-loving community, and engage with each other through your programming. Plus, there’s no station in Perth that offers the wide spectrum of independent music listening that RTRFM does – being involved with the station is about doing my bit to keep that alternative alive.
If you could present a show that is not your own, which show would it be? Why?
I’d be down to do more Full Frequency, or Bass Check. The thought of programming two hours of non-stop dance music makes me giddy.
What do you do in real life?
