Q: Joined the Beeb in?
Q: What has your career involved so far?
A: Actually I’ve done all sorts of things from sales assistant at a travel agent, through barman and waiter to the BBC. I think one of my favourite things I’ve done was producing an audio feature of people’s historic recollections for the local heritage centre in my home town of Henley. Since joining BBC Coventry and Warwickshire I've produced the weekend programmes, the Drive Time show and generally had a go at everything else inbetween!
Q: What does your job involve?
A: I'm the producer for Annie Othen's Morning Show. I spend my days setting up the stories and writing the scripts for the show, deciding what to put where and so on. Then when we're on air *cough* Between 10 & 1 Monday to Friday *cough* I'll be outside the studio making sure everyone's in the right place at the right time!
Q: What do you like best about BBC Coventry & Warwickshire?
A: I've always loved the Open Centre. It’s a really versatile space and such a great place to walk into and think, "Awesome. I work here!". It's at its best when we're using it for live performances from local artists, to have that kind of thing happening in your office is pretty special.
Q: What's your favourite place in Coventry and Warwickshire?
A: Bancroft gardens in Stratford in the summertime.
Q: Who's your favourite person?
A: Henry Rollins
Q: What's your favourite hobby?
A: Seeing as much live music as humanly possible! In fact anything music related, listening, playing…dancing like a fool!

A: Harold and Kumar Get The Munchies. I've lost track of how many times I've seen it!
Q: Give us a fascinating fact about yourself:
A: I may look like a nice boy but I used to be in a punk band. Well, sort of. We played very fast, very out of time and somebody said we were "very punk". That was good enough for us!
