About me

 

Hailing from York, I come with a reet Northern accent (some describe as perfect and some describe as the opposite). I've always had a love for music and radio which is why I went down the educational route I did. I'm currently working for a very news heavy radio station and this has been a challenge, but one I feel I've really come to terms with and now feel a lot better about it. My ideal job would either be music radio, or something else within the music industry. I'm a good laugh, make a banging cup of tea and can find you the best bar on a friday evening.
