How do you feel about putting pineapple on pizza?

I love pineapple on pizza

What is your favourite TV show at the moment?

I will forever love The Office with Steve Carrell but recently watched MAID which was amazing. Also hated Squid Game

If you weren’t in radio – what would you be doing?

I would be working in Marketing in the Entertainment industry. I have an honours degree in Marketing and have a passion for it.

What music is currently on repeat in your car/house/phone?

My music taste is very weird. Anything very melodic I’ll enjoy.

Thirty Seconds to Mars for life, tho!

Also an Angels and Airwaves fan.

What’s something someone would never guess about you?

I can’t sing or dance to save my life.
