Technical skills and experience:
I have experience in a range of roles both presenting and producing for UK radio. I have an excellent grasp of new media and multi-platform radio technologies. I also have a good working knowledge of Pro Tools and Adobe Audition 3. As well as experience in using RCS Master Control, RCS Selector, Myriad 3 as well as Myriads Remote Voice tracking.
I have plenty of experience working within a studio environment and have worked on either side of the desk in both presenting and producing roles. I have produced trails, promo’s and imaging. I have also produced features, conducted interviews and planned competitions.
I have over 8 year’s professional broadcasting and presenting experience. I have presented various different shows, provided short notice cover for weekday presenters and even conducted OB’s from festivals and concerts. I have a genuine passion for radio and love for entertaining. I’m personable, friendly, and relatable. I have lots of energy and enthusiasm and can easily lend myself to different presenting roles and styles.
