When I was starting university I didn’t know what to do, but I somehow found myself stumbling into radio and now I love it and can’t get away! Little surprises in life like that is what I love the most. But when I’m not presenting/assistant producing I’m occasionally playing my violin and piano to pass the time, or I’m busy being a nerd and playing video games, watching movies, making a ridiculous amount of puns or finding fun and weird facts online.
How did you become involved in the station?
I got involved with RTRFM through my university. As an extra subject we could do a radio placement and I chose to do mine at RTRFM. I helped produce The Mag and then after my placement finished I decided to stay and continue Assistant Producing. Now I’m even presenting!
What is the best thing about being involved in the station?
The best is definitely the people at RTRFM. Everyone is so nice and welcoming, its great coming in and being able to meet new people and chat about radio things. I also love all the different things I learn at the station, whether it be from conducting interviews, listening to interviews on other shows or just stumbling across something on the internet. Everyday I’m learning something new!
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?
The strangest thing that has happened to me at RTRFM was when ice cubes started falling out of the air con in the studio. I guess it was the aircon’s way of telling me to stay cool.
If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?
I think Drastic on Plastic would be fun to present as I could learn more about women in music, and Ambient zone so I could play some chilled music.
What do you do in real life?
When I’m not assistant producing or presenting on RTRFM I’m either at my casual job or doing bits and pieces of whatever I can get involved with (I like learning new things!) Currently I also produce (and occasionally present) a local video game podcast called Pixel Sift, and I’m part of a small development team working on an indie game. But in spare moments I’m battling enemies in the multiple Dungeons and Dragons campaigns that I play in.
