Iโ€™ve presented technology-focused content for a variety of channels and brands including BBC, EE, Samsung, Microsoft and Nokia.

๐ŸŽง Podcast Host & Producer
I got into hospital radio as a kid, through my Dad who ran the hospital radio service and helped launch our first ever local radio station.
