About Me:

I joined the Christmas FM family in 2023 presenting the What’s On Guide.  I’ve always been a fan of anything media related.  I worked in TV3 in the early days and have worked on various different radio stations mostly in an entertainment capacity.  I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing some amazing people a couple of my favourites being TV3’s Martin King, Martin Kemp from Spandau Ballet and West End legend Michael Ball.  So that’s the media stuff covered, but Christmas is my favourite time of the year.  I’ve played Mrs Claus in Rathwood during the Covid period and I’m well known on the amateur panto circuit as I’ve been doing pantos for over 25 years ( – oh no I haven’t – oh yes I have!) Most recently playing the evil Queen in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in Blessington.   So you can only imagine how thrilling it is for me to tick Christmas FM off my bucket list.
