I have a deep love for good music, and a keen interest in people’s stories.
How did you become involved?
A radio tutor suggested I start volunteering in my first year of uni, in 2008. After answering phones for a while, I eventually wormed my way into the Roots collective. I’ve been presenting Morning Magazine for the better part of 2012.
If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?
- The Mountain Goats – All Hail West Texas.
- Adam Gnade – Run, Hide, Retreat, Surrender.
- The Dodos – Visiter.
- Le Loup – Family.
- Animal Collective – Sung Tongs .
What is the best thing about being involved with the station?
Morning magazine allows me to have conversations with talented, accomplished and inspirational people. I get to be part of a community that genuinely cares about what they do, and I get to constantly find new, exciting music and share what I love with others.
If you could present a show that is not your own, which show would it be? Why?
Spoonful of Blues – I grew up with the blues and it’s the music I keep coming back to.
What do you do in real life?
I play bass in local bands Flower Drums and Rachel and Henry Climb a Hill. I sell cheese and other good things. I tend my garden and come up with any excuse to cook for friends and housemates.
