I am currently the Station Manager of The Garage. What makes me unique is my broad understanding of how a radio station operates with skills in On-Air, Sales, Creative, Production, Podcasting and Producing with the leadership ability to help create, pitch and now run a commercial radio station.

From various roles of responsibility be they Head Boarder at Rathkeale College and now a Residential Assistant at Otautahi House through to working in retail and job experience at NZME Wellington have made me confident working with people of all ages.

In the future I would love the opportunity to further develop in a plethora of areas in radio.


Current First Aid Cert?                           Yes

Driver Licence?                                       Full

I was an on-air announcer on The Garage 96.1 for 7 weeks, doing the morning show from 10-1. This is a mixture of on-air and voicing ads.
