A lover of words, people’s stories and telling them. A radio/media nerd, and a music nut/serial aux-chord hogger with frustratingly about as much musical talent as the chair I’m sitting on. RTR is a massive part of my life and I love being able to be amongst so many things I love in one magical place.
How did you become involved in the station?
I started (and still continue) in the RTRFM newsroom! I completely threw myself into news reading at the station twice a week from the get-go (volunteer newsies are only meant to come in once a week but I have no life and seriously loved it that much), I grew absolutely obsessed with RTR and decided to literally move in, and here I am. I live here now.
What is the best thing about being involved in the station?
Where do I start? I love my little chats with Will, Taylah and Danae in the mornings. I love the fact that I hear something new every day I’m here. I love being a part of and contributing to my favourite radio station in the world. I love the people. I love the water filter. Sometimes there’s biscuits. I love it here.
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?
Being allowed on air.
If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?
I love local music and would love to give Homegrown a go, Drastic on Plastic would be a dream, and just quietly, Cloudwaves or All City would make the r&b/hip hop lover in me swooooon.
What do you do in real life?
I’m an overly committed and super passionate journalism student, I make coffee to pay the bills, watch heaps of conspiracy theory videos, write stuff, and try get to as many gigs as I can.
