I have over 4 years experience of working in the broadcast media from my involvement with Xpress Radio, , Communicorp, Bengo Media and BBC Radio.
Currently I freelance with BBC Radio Wales and Bengo Media as well as other production companies around the UK.
I have been fortunate to have work experience at BBC Radio 3, 4 and 5 live at MediaCityUK in Salford. I was trained to use software such as Proteus, iBroadcast, dira!, PhoneBox 4 and Open Media.
Whilst studying for my degree, I started my own independent podcast and brand, Think Tank. I have been inspired by podcast hosts in the USA including Lea That (Strangers) and Phoebe Judge (Criminal). Think Tank Podcast is a storytelling programme showcasing other people’s life experiences and current events. (see more)
Fro 2016-17 I was Station Manager of Xpress Radio, overseeing a committee of fourteen who keep the station running to a high standard. This time saw Xpress Radio flourish internationally, with the start of our Canadian Programme Exchange. This is an initiative I am really proud of – partnering us with two student stations in Montreal, Canada. We also have had successes with our coverage of the US election in 2016 and our yearly festival, Xpresstival held at Club Ifor Bach in Cardiff. During my time in student radio I presented live shows such as ‘The Clinic’ , ‘The Friday Show’ and ‘Friday Live’, as well as guest presenting and producing on other programmes. I also co-founded Xpress Radio Drama which, in 2017, won bronze for Best Speech Programming.
