I was born in Sutton in Ashfield in Nottinghamshire. I have a son called Joel who loves music, but wants to be a professional gamer when he gets older and not a radio presenter. When I'm not on the radio you can find me spending time with my family, eating out around Rotherham and trying to do some household chores. I have worked at many radio groups and stations across the UK, but my first job after leaving college was as a lifeguard for my local leisure centre. As for my music taste, albums on my I-pod include Ellie Goulding and ELO.
