RADIO, VOLUNTEER & FESTIVALS
Tune in to my show, 'In The Groove' (currently taking a break)
I volunteer with TVPS in Swansea. I really love volunteering there. I have learnt how to edit using the Kasablanca edit suite, how to record using a camera and how to do other things. My greatest achievement so far has been producing a programme about the Loughor Inshore Rescue Lifeboat - see it at youtu.be/aqJM-5_V418
I was part of the team on 'Dub Dragon Sound System!' nights at Mozarts, really love the venue, just a shame its not on every month!, hope to be doing more with them soon.
In July 2014 I volunteered at the Forever Sun Festival in Dorchester, helping out with car parking, security at various gates in the festival as well as cleaning, I also helped when a man passed out.
In 2015 I volunteered at Troyfest, and in 2016 at The Big Love Festival and created a docu-film at Nozstock.
