As you can see, I work across a variety of areas, but mainly I like talking to people - either as a presenter, interviewer, course facilitator, between songs on stage, or just wherever I find someone interesting, which I tend to find is actually 'everywhere'. If you would like to contact me about doing more of the same, particularly hosting events, conducting interviews or presenting in general, please see the aptly titled 'contact' page.
