WHAT DOES YOUR PROGRAM OFFER TO LISTENERS? 


A yarn about me, my poetry, community news from Aboriginal perspective as well as sharing unity through music and guests on the show.

I used to work in radio in Brisbane when i was studying my Cert IV in Film and TV, during my time as a journalist. I knew that I liked the world of radio and one of the Board members offered me an opportunity at 2bbb, I happily accepted.

Focus on my small business in supporting people through the doors of unity and inclusion.
