I presented my first radio show in the 90s on my bedroom floor with the help of my big brother and a nifty double cassette deck. I was immediately hooked and decided to specialise in Radio and Sound at Uni. I became a super keen, bordering on geeky, broadcast student, even swapping Friday night clubbing for volunteering at Lincoln’s local radio station! 

 I’m a self confessed crazy cat lady, keen photographer and big fan of music. I love supporting the local scene in Bucks and Herts. There’s so much talent around and it’s exciting to discover new artists performing at your local pub!

 I constantly think about food and I’m a regular supplier of biscuits at Mix96 HQ. It’s impressive and unusual that I haven’t mentioned food until now.

 When I’m not in the studio, the chances are I’ll be watching, hosting or performing at an event, singing with tribute show act Blues Brothers Banned or attempting to write my own songs on the guitar.
