From a young age, listening to adult & contemporary hit radio stations has inspired me to create & build my own show in my home studio. From this, I started my own Soundcloud account where I would post radio shows and homemade production that derived from my personal experience.
I became a volunteer in community radio in 2018, presenting the weekday Drivetime programme along with producing many other elements of the station - but now I am looking for my next challenge. I also have a good knowledge of programmes such as Adobe Audition/Photoshop, Burli, basic knowledge of ProTools and am proficient in using playout systems (inc. scheduling)
After finishing Creative Media Production studies at college, I am now working with Bauer Media in London as an Audio Planning Coordinator.
