Originally from Perth, I bounced around Sydney and New York City for uni and work. My first experience with community radio was at a station in the Blue Mountains in NSW. Highlights included hanging out with lovely community radio folk, hosting the Battle of the Bands, and getting snowed on when I went to collect the mail. Later, while in the depths of an NYC winter, I found out that loving snow is a rookie mistake and dear god please make the snow stop/temperature go above zero.

I love heading out to gigs, local music in general, 80s synthpop, travelling, and geeking out over The Simpsons.

How did you become involved?

I came back home to Perth after working in the USA, and I was keen to get on board at RTR! I filled in the volunteer form and went from there.

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

  • Fleetwood Mac – Rumours
  • Radiohead – In Rainbows
  • The Stone Roses – The Stone Roses
  • New Order – Power, Corruption & Lies
  • Pixies – Doolittle

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

Rad people, new tunes, and getting hands-on with Perth culture.

What do you do in real life?

I’m a freelance writer, sometimes an actor, and always a trivia nerd.
