Radio & Media Work

I have worked for most of the major radio groups in the UK over the last decade, you can currently find me presenting the weekday midmorning show on Gem 106 (formerly Heart 106) across the East Midlands, along with regular shows on Free Radio (formerly BRMB, Beacon Radio, Mercia and Wyvern).

Prior to my role here, I spend several years spent at Emap/Bauer, on stations such as Metro Radio, 96.3 Radio Aire, Viking FM, Hallam FM, TFM, presenting various shows over the years, along with syndicated programmes such as "Late & Live" across the Big City network.  I was also an early supporter of digital radio, presenting weekday shows on the UK's biggest digital-station "The Hits" (evenings, afternoons, then to breakfast) and Heat radio.

I also spent two years between London and Bristol, presenting daily syndicated programmes across 37 stations for Gcap Media/Global Radio, on the One/Heart-holding Network, from London's Leicester Square, and have increased weekly audiences from 350,00 per week to 475,000 in 18 months (RAJAR Q4 2008).  Plus, presenting regular local shows around the stations in the group, including GWR FM, Capital FM and Red Dragon.

A pro at live OBs and stage hosting, I have interviewed many world famous bands, musicians and movie stars.

I am also a technology addict, absorbed in Web 2.0, digital media, and the blogosphere.

Some of recent, and on-going projects include working with the on-line men's video-magazine "ChannelFlip", in true "new media spirit" doing everything from video presenting, programme ideas, website maintenance, to script writing.   I also worked with the BBC and Timeline TV on the Olympics 2008 coverage, utilising blogging, editing and various production skills.  

I'm a founding board member, and have been instrumental in the creation of new enterprise "Geeks Radio", an entertainment network for technology enthusiasts.  Offering consultancy, production assistance, voice overs, presenter coaching, and helping to create business direction.

My passion for technology is released by writing blogs, reviews, and columns for various technology sites around the world, including tech blogging-network "Lockergnome".

I also somehow find time to present and produce specialist music shows specialising in House music, and dance music classics, with my two brands "Mirrorball" and "Dancefloor Anthems". These shows have been syndicated on various stations over the last four years, including UK Satellite channel Pure Dance, RTI across Europe, and currently Rapture TV's radio service.
