Producer ability


May I invite you to view the music video which is on my profile, or look "Emcee Granny" up on Youtube or Facebook.

I 'fell' into this role as Emcee Granny. This music video idea was borne out of real life circumstances where I have reached a target audience of "abandoned" wives.. the video gives a comical look to a sad and serious subject.

Thank you!

Radio presenter experience

Previous paid Radio presenter roles

  • English

  • Australian
  • UK English
  • UK Posh

My presenter experience includes several years as an announcer/news reader/talk back host on Brisbane radio.
I have also been an MC at events, and still undertake this role.
As an academic, I've MC'd and lectured at many conferences, workshops and events, and have been a key note and conference speaker on numerous occasions.
I have recently become a stand-up comedian and am excited about this new challenge.
As an actor and as a presenter, I love an audience and I am able to adapt to any product or service about which I am asked to MC.
