I’m a Perth based sound artist currently studying a Bachelor of Composition and Music Technology at WAAPA. I often get to collaborate with local dancers, film makers, and visual artists, and am pretty heavily involved in the weirder experimental side of the Perth music scene (hence why I present Difficult Listening!). I also perform folk/pop music around the place with the a cappella band Darling, a solo project Nika Mo, and an electronic project called great statue. Always keen for a boogie, and always keen to be out catching local music.

How did you become involved with the station?

I’ve been a long time listener, but recently was encouraged to take the presenter training course as the collective for Difficult Listening had a change up in presenters!

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

Very tough one! I think if stuck in an alien terrain, I’d go with my most comforting/familiar albums:
Metronomy – The English Riviera
Joni Mitchell – Blue
Frank Ocean – Blonde
Sufjan Stevens – Carrie and Lowell
Mac Demarco – This Old Dog

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

Getting to play local music! There’s so much local talent in Perth and I love being able to share that music. Also getting calls on Up Late is always fun, and of course getting to be involved in RTR events.

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

Nothing very strange has happened since I started presenting! But there have been some embarrassing interview answers involving fire-retardant elephants and my childhood invention of an interspecies breed called Dragon-dogs (while being interviewed on The Midnight Special).

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

Global Rhythm Pot – I always happen to catch this on Saturdays while driving and I just get an absolute groove on in my car.

What do you do in real life?

Study Music Composition at WAAPA, perform around the place, teach singing and piano, and write lots of music!
