My career begin in BBC local radio aged 16 whilst still at sixth form college, before becoming a presenter and producer at BBC GLR in London alongside Chris Evans, Danny Baker, Chris Morris, Johnnie Walker, Tommy Vance and other luminaries. The legendary Radio Luxembourg alongside a very young Chris Moyles was next. Following Luxy's demise I returned to London to be part of the opening DJ line-up at Virgin Radio. I then moved on to BBC Radio 1 as a DJ and host of 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 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.
Based in London, I continue to be a film critic for radio and TV, including Sky News and BBC Scotland, and write psychologically informed reviews for the British Psychological Society's magazine. I have been a top British voiceover artist for over 20 years, and am represented by Yaketyyak. I am the voice of BBC2’s Great British Menu and many national advertising campaigns. 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.
In 2019 I received the British Psychology Society Award for achieving the top first class BSc in Psychology with the Open University, scoring higher than over one thousand fellow students across all four of the OU's Psychology degrees - read my story here.
I am currently studying an MSc in Culture and Society at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).
