My music taste has always been eclectic – I’ve soaked up everything from my Mum’s ABBA collection through to the most out-there leftfield punk; even if I’m not hooked automatically, new and exciting music always intrigues me. When I first moved to Perth I immersed myself in local gigs, eventually winding up volunteering for RTR and now I try to be involved in music community wherever possible.
How did you become involved in the station?
I started off volunteering at the admin desk with absolutely no intention of ever going on air but was convinced otherwise pretty quickly. Now you’ll find me filling in for any show I possibly can, lending a hand in the office and at all of the RTR events.
What is the best thing about being involved in the station?
Being a part of the RTRFM family is a special experience, it’s gratifying to be able to contribute to something that so many people are so passionate about. I’ve also developed a love for presenting that I never thought I would have, it’s a really nice feeling when someone tells you they listened to your show or liked a song that you played.
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?
Mostly anything that involves Will Bixler.
If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?
I’ve been pretty lucky to fill in for some of my favourite shows like Drastic, Out To Lunch, and Breakfast – but I’d love to have my own Drivetime or Out To Lunch one day in the future.
What do you do in real life?
Studying, interning, working and running gigs over at Crab Claw.
