About Me:

A proud Christmas FM elf since 2015, and a life long lover of all things Christmas. I started in radio back in New York when the call for a presenter with a new show idea made me capitalise on my unique angle of bringing across the pond alternative and indie tunes to the NY music lovers. I never looked back and across the years have enjoyed turning my hand to different formats. Christmas FM is something very special though, and there’s nothing quite like it. The day job is very different, but as rewarding and important in an industry I love, I’m lucky that way. I’m constantly travelling, learning and trying new things whether its new food, instruments, or activities. Most recently I’ve randomly challenged myself to solve a rubiks cube in less than 5 minutes, last time it took 7… I’m getting there.
