My interest in radio started with the pirates of the 70's, Caroline, RNI, Radio Atlantis and early ILR stations like Capital, LBC. At the tender age of 14 I did the 'Young DJ Spot' on Capital Radio, a place I spent many a weekend hanging around to meet my hero of the day Kenny Everett.

So off to Hospital Radio's Medway and Maidstone for the ground work training and knob twiddling. At BBC Radio Medway, I was the stand in presenter for Kent Rocks and a regular contributor with the weekly Gig Guide this was followed by a period of doing Voice Over's for Commercials as Independent Radio began to expand in the UK and 30 years later I'm still doing Voice Over work for companies around the world including Italy, New Zealand, Australia and the UK.

When Medway FM began RSL's I presented the Breakfast Show and participated in all their other RSL's and including when they won the application to have the licence to broadcast to the Medway Towns. (now KMFM)

In October 2003 I joined Radio Caroline and carved out a spot as the Sunday Morning breakfast presenter from their then Maidstone based studios and from the Ross Revenge during Caroline RSL's till October 2005, this was in addition to doing programmes from 2005 to the current day for internet and RSL stations like ERBS Radio, TNI Radio, Radio Samantha, Red Sands Radio, Summit Radio, Britain Radio, James FM (Switzerland) and since 2006, presenting programmes for Radio Seagull, including The Fusion Cellar featuring music with a hint of Jazz.
