Broadcaster

I’ve been a radio presenter/broadcaster in commercial and BBC radio for over 20 years, at the time of writing. (The time of writing this is 2021; which is nearly half past 8.)

I have been fortunate to work for some of the biggest brands in UK radio, alongside some of the loveliest people on the planet.

Over the years I have appeared on national TV in the Maldives, created a competition where two exes vied for a dream holiday, and interviewed some amazing people: from movie stars to everyday heroes. (Read what I’ve learned about interviewing techniques here.)

Content Writer

I have been writing as long as I have been in radio. (Longer, in fact, because I had an article published in Middlesbrough FC’s fanzine “Fly Me To The Moon” when I was 14.)

As well as writing blogs, social media content, radio adverts (Heart, Smooth), web pages and all sorts of creative things for people and brands, for the last 4 years I have been a BBC journalist.

I tend to write as I speak and always in a positive, warm jumper.
