How did you become involved in the station?
I’ve wanted to work in radio for a very long time. As I’ve said before “I have a great face for radio.” The opportunity came up to do the announcer’s course at RTRFM and I jumped at the chance.
If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?

- BROS – BROS
What is the best thing about being involved in the station?
The variety of people and the mix of tastes displayed in the programming throughout the week.
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?
Nothing that strange has happened, yet! I’ll keep you posted.
If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?
I’d love to be involved in Drivetime.
What do you do in real life?
I’m an artist working in both oils and acrylics as well as enjoying sculpture.
I volunteer in Advocacy at a systemic level for people with disabilities, people living with HIV and GLBTI issues generally.
I do a lot of interstate travel as a member of the board of ACOSS as well as working with Centrelink at a national level.
