I’m a creative person who enjoys conversing with like-minded individuals over Step Brothers scenes and culture. Keeping myself busy through volunteering at places that I love is something that keeps me content. Mostly I have absolutely no idea what I am doing, but I have hope that I will get there eventually, through a process of trial, error and eating masses upon masses of Quesadillas. I like Quesadillas. Plus, I have always loved music in all of its forms and I studied journalism so radio was something, which stood out.
How did you become involved in the station?
I first volunteered in the phone-room during the 2013 Radiothon. After I got talking to all of the awesome people, I knew I wanted to stick around. They also let me in on this supposed ‘6-week radio course’, to which my initial thoughts were ‘WOW that sounds scary’ but that soon turned into ‘can I sign up now?’
If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?
- Saskwatch – Nose Dive
- Warpaint – Warpaint
- Air – Moon Safari
- Daughter – If You Leave
- Alt-J – An Awesome Wave
What is the best thing about being involved in the station?
The people. Most are cool, passionate and intriguing. Which in turn is inspiring, motivating and amusing. Pretty crazy to think without the support hundreds of volunteers, sponsors, local artists and so forth, the station simply wouldn’t function.
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?
Once I was waiting for my ride out the front of RTRFM’s doors, when some shirtless dude tapped me on the shoulder and gave me a decorated napkin, encouraging me to ‘read it’. Turns out, it was the shirtless dude’s comrade (who was double my age) passing on his digits, in hopes that I might join him on a ‘date’ to see the Elephant Seal. Both the Planet video employee (on her durry-break at the time) and myself, agreed the gesture was brave; however I chose to decline his ingenious invitation via text message.
If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?
MORNING MAG. I hope the opportunity will arise again soon as last time it did, I felt that I wasn’t quite experienced enough. I think the show is awesome because it allows the presenters to add a lot of their own personality. Plus it’s a great opportunity to challenge yourself, as well as meet a range of like-minded individuals.
What do you do in real life?
In ‘real life’, I study Media-Communications and Marketing plus, I intern at WAM and volunteer elsewhere. Both of the latter make studying a degree – which will leave me with an un-laminated piece of paper and a serious loan debt – only a smidgen less painful. I also watch a bunch of stand-up comedy, attend live gigs, consistently dance worse then your father does, scroll my Instagram newsfeed habitually and search patiently for Perth’s tastiest Quesadillas.
