About me

Hi! Firstly I am a creative, and a vibrant joy to be around. Secondly I am a radio nerd and music enthusiast. I am extremely passionate about what I do, which is to materialise charming radio content and curate top knotch playlists, usually of new and unsigned music. As mentioned above, I love music. I used to play the drums which went well for a while, until I realised that I was better at critically listening to and writing about music than conducting it. But that's okay, rock-stardom isn't for everybody. Instead of drums, I discovered I was a dab-hand at presenting radio, thus The Hartley Jam was invented. This is a specialist music radio show that I wrote/produced/playlisted and presented during my time at University on their student radio station. I have now graduated, and am looking for a position in both the radio and music industry. With me you will get a very loyal employee, and a hardworking addition to your team. (And definitely a boost in morale!). I am very keen to get involved in the professional media world, and really want to exploit, develop and improve the knowledge and skills that I have gained during my five years of working in and studying Radio Production.
