I am a Sydney based radio and online media producer, employed by the Australian Radio Network (ARN) working across KIIS, Pure Gold, The Edge and iHeartRadio. I am currently the video producer for Mike E and Emma and digital producer for The Edge 96.ONE.

Additionally, I produce, panel operate and co-host my own radio show on Melbourne’s JOY 94.9FM, called Not My Cup of Tea.

I recently graduated from the Australian Film Television & Radio School (AFTRS) with an Advanced Diploma in Radio Essentials.

Previously I have worked as a digital producer on a casual basis for The Thinkergirls at KIIS 1065 Sydney and Jo and Lehmo at Gold 104.3 Melbourne. I also spent 1 year working as a producer, presenter & video editor for Marquee Studios’ youth media property, Amplify.

I also produce videos for my own YouTube channel and Facebook page, having cultivated an online following in excess of 60,000 in the wake of my first viral video creation in 2015.

I hail from the tiny town of Bogan Gate in rural Australia, but I could not be further from your conventional country bloke. I have an intense dislike of sport and will avoid getting my hands dirty at all costs. I enjoy musical theatre, pop music, trashy Aussie TV Drama and often get a little excited upon discovering a new flavour of Chapstick.
