How did you become involved in the station?
It started with a love affair…I fell in love with Richard Fidler. He doesn’t know about it of course. He’s an ABC radio broadcaster and the way he extracts the most interesting stories from people is amazing. I was listening to a podcast of his and thought, I could do that! I had friends involved in the station which is how I started the RTR broadcasting course.

What is the best thing about being involved in the station?
The people I get to meet! All the artists I’ve interviews have had different backgrounds, different creative processes. What a privilege to elicit those stories!
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?
Answering a phone call at 4am from a Janet who had lost her dark glasses. I don’t think I was much of a help to her.
If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?
The Mag- I’m very interested in political issues and current affairs. These issues are important to flesh out and communicate to the public so I’d love to be involved in that one day.
What do you do in real life?
A bit of rollerblading, a lot of coffee making, the occasional poetry slam…oh, and I study Psychology and Political Science at UWA.
