I am a graduate of the Radio Broadcasting Program at Algonquin College in Ottawa, Ontario. I completed a six week internship at Rogers Radio in Ottawa during my second year of the program where I worked closely with 4 of the producers from the 5 stations in the Ottawa Rogers Group. I’m currently the producer at Peace River Broadcasting in Peace River, Alberta. I voicetrack The Night Cap Monday-Thursday 7 to midnight and host The Perfect 10 Countdown show and Friday Night House Party from 6-midnight on Friday nights.ย  I am highly organized and I ran my own business as a Passion Parties consultant for just over a year. Since October 2013 I’ve also been running a small photography business. I do a lot of photography work for the station I currently work at and I am also counted on to work promotions at several station events as it is a small, individually owned company.

I was trained in Selector for music programing and TLC for traffic while I was at Algonquin. I was also taught to use Voicetracker, Burli and Newsroom. In Peace River I’ve been using IMediaTouch Production and IMediaTouch Voice Tracking. I am very skilled with Adobe Audition and I have a strong understanding of running social media pages on various platforms like Twitter and Facebook.

I am a rock music lover through and through but while working in radio I’ve learned to appreciate music of every variety. In every genre, there’s going to be songs you love and songs you don’t. My Sirius radio presets include Fly FM, Alt Nation, Hip Hop Nation, Faction, Lithium, Shade 45, The Heat, 90s at 9 and Hits 1.
