How did you become involved in the station?

I started out by helping out in the office during the week at the start of 2018. I was trying to develop some of my administration skills in the music/arts industry and I was lucky enough to be able to be in the office one day a week and leech information and skills of the wonderful team at RTR.

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

The best thing about being involved with RTR are the amazing people you get to meet and share music with. There are so many different roles and experiences that I have been able to jump into thanks to the wonderful community here.

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

Chatting to the Premier, Mark MacGowan after an interview about what the ‘hip’ tunes are at the moment.

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

I absolutely love Drastic on Plastic. I have been a long-time listener to the show and have always admired the presenters and all the music that they play. I think that putting the focus on female and female-centric music is a very important thing to do and listening to this show as I was going through school and university gave me more confidence as a musician in what is still largely a male lead industry.

What do you do in real life?

A bunch of different things! I work as a saxophonist, so I perform and also teach saxophone. I also work at the WA Charity Orchestra as part of the admin team.
