It is incredibly rare for anyone to get a big break in radio or the recording industry fresh from college, I was no exception. I knew where I wanted to go in life but I needed some experience. Looking back on being fresh out of college, I would probably have been fired within days had I been put on a peak-time radio show!
I earned my stripes doing hospital and subsequently community radio, I spent hours producing specialist music programming as well as creating imaging to use on my shows. I also started contributing and featuring on BBC Radio Scotland’s Gary Roberston show.
Whilst all this was going on, I also found myself getting a reputation as a DJ in some of Scotland’s busiest venues and going on to establish and run a successful DJ agency – you can read more about that story here. I also branched out and started another business, you can find out more about that here.
I have real life experience and stories to tell; a maturity and acquired knowledge that is now put to good use. Life has thrown some curveballs at me but then I count myself lucky to wake up and do work that I love, I also have an amazing family who support me all the way.
