      Hi – thanks for your question. Well I actually started DJ’ing on Hospital Radio in Plymouth when I was 15. You had to be 16 but I lied to get the job! But this was very much part time at weekends.

      From there, I talked my way into BBC Radio Devon and ended up doing part time work for them for around 7 years, as well as DJ’ing in clubs. But I was always studying electronics. I did part time courses etc so that I worked on a ‘proper’ career whilst having a lot of fun and making some money. Plus it gave me a great social life!
