So, I’m a radio person – currently working as a Broadcast Engineer in UK Commercial Radio, I’m also a bit of a frustrated radio programmer, and avid radio listener. As well as this I’m involved with the Radio Academy as part of the Radio Festival TechCon Committee and I often turn up for beers with ASRA.

I have worked for Global Traffic Network (looking after traffic radio), Global Radio (in Fareham & Chelmsford) and Celador Radio in a variety of Broadcast Technology roles before returning to Global Radio in 2014 to work in the London Technology team.

Previously I’ve been chair of the Student Radio Association, representing over 100 stations across the UK. I also developed the studentradio.org.uk website and I Love Student Radio portal. Since leaving the SRA I have actively contributed to the operation of the Student Radio Awards, both coordinating judging and designing the online entry and judging system.

I’m a graduate and former employee of the University of Bath where I gained a Masters Degree in Chemical Engineering and worked as a Sales & Events Coordinator.

A big chunk of university life was spent at 1449AM URB, both on air and behind the scenes in production, marketing & engineering. I was also a member of Backstage and BRAS.

Before getting to Bath I studied at The Wyche Primary and later John Masefield High School & Sixth Form.

Radio wise I listen a lot to XFM as well as Absolute Radio and their sister stations, a bit of comedy on BBC Radio 4, as well as a selection of podcasts.

I cycle quite a lot, have been known to cook and I take a lot of photos.

I’m also partial to a good pint of real ale!

I stole this idea from James, as it seemed quite a good one…
