About Me:

I’ve been here since the start, as one of the co-founders it seems like a distant memory now when we first switched on Christmas FM. I love radio, and have been involved in stations since I was 14. I’ve had the pleasure of running radio stations in the late 90’s (Pulse 103 FM) and early ’00’s (Energy 94) and met most of the other founders in those pirate radio days.

After a break of a few years, the radio bug started to bite again, and Christmas FM was born, as many good things are, from a chat in a pub (at a radio station reunion ; ). We look after our other radio related activities in our sister company RadioHub, where we focus on pop up radio stations, such as Halloween FM and radio training.

Outside of radio I run a health and fitness business with my wife, and enjoy very much being dad to a lovely 5 year old.
