Have you ever been with your mates, had a few too many drinks and decided you should get a tattoo?Read more
I spent 10 years of my life not following my passion just working in bars and thanks to a leap of faith last year I have achieved so much that I decided to make it a career.
I host a radio show on the internet station Hard Rock Hell Radio every week keeping people up to date with what is happening in the world of rock while playing tracks from both established and new bands. I have done this for 14 months, every week and I have done over 70 shows including specials such as “Take me to the Sunset Strip”, “Twister Christmas Takeover” and “GlamRat at the Movies”. I write for Hard Rock Hell Magazine, I have written previews for their festivals, reviews of new releases, features articles (most recently ACDC’s Back in Black 40th anniversary) and interviewing bands. I have strong connections with bands in Scandinavia and have interviewed greats such as Doro Pesch, the Queen of Heavy Metal and in lockdown I interviewed Alice Cooper’s guitarist, Ryan Roxie. Another project I have been a part of with Hard Rock Hell is working with their programs that are available to watch on Amazon Prime, including their awards show and a new project called “Black Box”.
From working with this company both from home and at the festivals I have gained a lot of knowledge, learning how to use recording software (I currently use Reaper), meeting deadlines, creating contacts, developing interviewing techniques and research, plenty of research. At festivals I have had to think quick and research on my feet before interviewing and also adapting to situations changing at a moments notice.
My biggest passion is music. I cannot play it but I love listening to it, reading about and going to concerts.
