Authoritative but warm, familiar and reassuring. When you need a voice that is trustworthy but not stuffy – serious but not dull – I can help.

I’m principally a Radio Presenter – highly experienced in live broadcasting, which has always been at the heart of my working life.

The same skills I call on in the radio studio come in handy for other activities, such as hosting corporate events, conferences, awards ceremonies, musical concerts – anything that needs an engaging presenter.

Radio presenter

I’ve been a Radio Presenter all my working life to date. News, speech, pop music, jazz & soul, and most recently Classical, as the breakfast host on Scala Radio, across the UK from Bauer Media. Live radio reaches parts other media can’t, and I love being on the air.

Scala Radio Breakfast

Scala Radio was launched by Bauer Media as the UK’s newest classical music station in March 2019 and I’ve been delighted to be at the helm of the weekday breakfast show ever since. It’s a fun and inviting station, with a broad-brush selection of classical favourites alongside new material from movies and games, and always with room for a musical surprise. At a time of day when other breakfast shows are bouncing and yelping with excitement, I’m taking it rather more gently.

David Cameron live interview

Time was running out for Prime Minister David Cameron, a point the 10 Downing Street clock chose to underscore quite vigorously during our interview. He was assuring me of his intent to continue as MP for Witney, but that didn’t quite work out either!
