Outside of the station, I’m all about the ocean, playing music, writing…a little photography when I’m somewhere exciting. I’ve grown up living in Fremantle and feel totally blessed to have been around such an exciting music scene.

However, since I’ve been volunteering at RTRFM that immersion has been exponentially amplified. And it’s great – I love constantly hearing all of the incredible local talent that exists right here in Perth. To be able to combine that good music with The Mag, where I get to interview such a broad range of people about issues and areas that have purpose to myself and listeners in Perth – well what more could I ask for?

How did you become involved in the station?

I returned from travelling, and I wanted to find out more about Radio and the Media industry, so I sent the station an email, and soon after I was in, helping out behind the scenes producing for The Mag.

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

The Smiths – The Queen is Dead
The Pixies – Doolittle
Grievous Bodily Calm – Thought Tapes (Live)
Beach Boys – Pet Sounds
Daft Punk – Discovery

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

Knowing that you’re supporting local community, and are proactively being part of it is a great aspect, but for me, the best part are the opportunities that the station provides for their volunteers and the community it represents.

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

Oh, you wouldn’t believe what happens to the presenters desk when I get behind it. Suddenly buttons will fire without pressing them, or the cart won’t play, a five minute song will decide it only has two minutes of content, or the phone line (usually with an interviewee hanging on) will decide it would rather drop out than go live on air. It really is terrible fun.

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

Don’t tell Caitlin, but Breakfast would be fun. Knowing that for many, your voice might be the first they hear every morning, and having it as your job to get them up, energised and smiling for the day, while also getting such a spread of different interviews and playing heaps of morning tunes… I’d eat that up.

What do you do in real life?

Pint-pourer and drink-shaker.
