I first presented on BBC Radio 3 in February 2012, a Saturday feature looking at the influence of birdsong in a selection of well known pieces of music. I now regularly present the Weekend Breakfast show live from Salford, Hear and Now and I've presented live outdoor broadcasts all throughout the country, in symphony halls and recital rooms.


I've broadcast live from major seasons and festivals, such as the opening night of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad, the BBC Piano Season, Radio 3's Baroque Spring and the Free Thinking Festival at Sage Gateshead.


As part of presenting for Radio 3 I've been able to meet and interview some of the great musicians of our time, people like John Luther Adams, Pierre-Laurent Aimard, Alice Coote, Richard Egarr, Mark Elder, Michael Finnissy, Edward Gardner, Paul Lewis, Andris Nelsons, Steven Osborne, Gábor Takács-Nagy and even the unbelievable opportunity to spend two hours interviewing my childhood hero Julian Bream at his home in Wiltshire for his 80th birthday in 2013.


As well as radio, I've presented online educational packages for the new music group Psappha, interviewed leading figures in the world of natural history, and once, because of my "thick Potteries accent", even found myself recording the part of 'Rapist 2' for Panorama.
