I first took an interest in radio while studying at University, where I joined the Student Union's radio station and acted as head of music content in my final year. After leaving University I spent a couple of years not involved in any sort of radio production after I graduated in 2015, but came to realise that I missed being involved in radio, which is what brought me to apply to be a member of Radio Calderdale.

I currently present The Alternative Universe on Tuesday evenings 5:30-7:00pm which is full of brilliant catchy music to put a smile on your face!
