About Me:

I’ve been a presenter with Christmas FM since 2009, so I’m glad to say I’ve been here almost from the start.  During the rest of the year I volunteer on the largest Community radio station in the country Near FM where I present the CRAOL award winning weekly news/magazine talk programme ‘Week in Review’ and a new weekly business programme called NearBy Business. I’m also a regular contributor on Newstalk.

I am a graduate of the University of Wolverhampton with a BA (hons) Degree in Broadcasting and Journalism and I also hold a Diploma in Radio Production.

Apart from radio, I’m an active member of Lusk Athletic Club and I like to travel, relax and read the odd book.
