I guess the story starts in 2008, when I was a student at Glyndwr University in Wrexham, North Wales and was trying to find my feet in the murky business of the music industry. I spent a lot of time doing live sound engineering, local crewing and making the best cups of tea you can imagine at the local venue Central Station, but through other friends getting involved I quickly found myself becoming heavily involved with the local community radio station; Calon FM.
I setup "The Metalheadz" radio show and within a few months was interviewing the likes of Iron Maiden, Slash and Opeth. I'm delighted to say that The Metalheadz is still on air today on Calon FM. After graduating university in 2010 I continued presenting at Calon FM whilst running my own artist management / PR company "Scream Aloud" where I had the pleasure of working with Arceye, Betraeus, Impaled Existence and With One Last Breath.
In 2012 I was lucky enough to make the jump to national radio joining Q Radio hosting "The Rock Show" and Kerrang! Radio as a swing presenter, then in the same year I was offered a position at Nuclear Blast Records as promotions manager for the London office. After a couple of years of working in both press and radio it was in 2013 that I decided to pursue radio full time and joined the newly formed TeamRock Radio, who I am still with today as a Music Editor (Head of music) and presenter / producer.
Over the years I have found great pleasure in doing interviews, meeting new people and hearing their stories, this is the inspiration behind the "That's Life Podcast"
