Credentials

Education

Virgin Radio, Century FM, NCTJ qualification

I was a multi award-winning broadcaster on National and regional UK radio for many years.
My programmes often featured sketches and pastiches, which means I have always needed to create new voices and imitate many styles, which I continue to do daily. Currently, I average around ten sessions per day.
