Born in Scotland and resident in Sydney, I’ve spent the last two decades hunting for music that defies convention and definition, turning out a slew of record labels, radio programs, zines, gigs, podcasts, blogs and more.
My work has been covered in articles by The Guardian, Time Out and The Brag, who called me “one of Australia’s most important champions of innovative music”.
My curatorial projects include the New Weird Australia music initiative and the left-field / experimental record label Provenance. I’ve worked as a broadcaster since 2003, presenting podcasts and programs on ABC Double J, Sydney’s FBi Radio and FBi Click, and UK station Resonance FM.
You can find me every day at Sydney Opera House where I work as Head of Digital Programming.
