I’m just a guy obsessed with listening to music, talking about music and writing about music. I’m also hugely interested in arts and culture, LGBT rights and community building.
How did you become involved in the station?
After many years of listening I joined the staff of the station as General Manager from 2009-2011. Since moving on to other ventures with my career I’ve continued as a volunteer presenting Golden Apples of the Sun. More often you’ll hear me filling in on Breakfast, Drivetime or Out to Lunch when someone is away.
What is the best thing about being involved in the station?
Without doubt it’s meeting a huge range of people. From the other presenters, to the plethora of guests who come through the building and the listeners who call up and drop by.

- Massive Attack – Blue Lines
- Primal Scream – Screamadelica
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?
Nothing would strike me as strange in the RTRFM studio, strange is the norm. I know I’ve had mountains of fun in there.
If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?
I’m actually on a mission to present every show at RTRFM at least once, so far I’ve completed Breakfast, The Mag, Artbeat, Snooze Button, Up Late, Out to Lunch, Soul Sides, Full Circle, BPM, All Things Queer, Bordak Bordak Ngalla and Rockin the Roots.
What do you do in real life?
I’m a co-owner at Speirins Media, the company that created OUTinPerth, WA’s LGBTI magazine and website.
