I started my career in BBC local radio aged 16 whilst still at sixth form college, before becoming a presenter and producer at GLR in London alongside Chris Evans, Danny Baker, Chris Morris, Johnnie Walker, Tommy Vance and others. The legendary Radio Luxembourg was next where a very young Chris Moyles was cutting his teeth. Following Luxy's demise I returned to London to be part of the opening line-up at Virgin Radio. I then moved on to BBC Radio 1 where I presented my own weeknight music show and the film show "Clingfilm". At the same time I took over from Mariella Frostrup as host of The Little Picture Show on ITV.
I’ve presented live in front of thousands at Radio 1 road shows, hosted Top Of The Pops with Robbie Williams, travelled the world as a reporter for The Travel Channel, presented live entertainment show Dial Midnight for ITV, Royal Movie Premieres from London's Leicester Square and a TV series about inventions with HRH Prince Edward. I've interviewed Al Pacino, Tom Hanks, J-Lo, and many many more Hollywood stars. I also enjoyed a stint as a stand up comic and co-wrote and performed the show Asteroid Haemorrhoid for The Edinburgh Festival with Lizzie Roper. As well as a divine period singing Jazz standards at events, I have written, recorded and performed music, and released my album Duvet Tuesday in 2007 (available on iTunes). I've also shared my skills with a new generation of media professionals, teaching for two years at La Salle College of The Arts in Singapore (2013 - 2015).
I continue to be a film critic for radio and TV, including Sky News and BBC Scotland. I have been a top British voice over artist for over 20 years, and am represented by Yaketyyak. I am the voice of BBC2’s Great British Menu and also voiced the national TV launch campaign for Nintendo 3DS. In addition I have my own recording studio where I produce voice overs and audio - everything from online presentations and training videos, to flight announcements for Cairo airport.
Based in London, I am currently studying a BSc in Psychology with the Open University.
