London, United Kingdom

I began working in radio in the mid 90′s in Israel, presenting on two stations based in Jerusalem & Tel Aviv. Returning to London in 2003, I have presented on various internet radio stations both in the UK and USA. In 2010, I joined Solar Radio presenting the weekly specialist jazz show, Notes & Tones and in 2016, joined JazzFM presenting Full Circle.

My shows are eclectic in style, spanning the broad spectrum of jazz. I promote unknown & unsigned artists primarily in the jazz world and have interviewed such artists as Al Jarreau, Carmen Lundy, Roy Ayres, Christian McBride, Orphy Robinson, Kenny Garrett, Rene Marie, the late Arnie Lawrence, Cleveland Watkiss, Raul Midon, Tuck & Patti, Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts, Paulo Freso, Greg Errico, Jean Toussaint, & many more. I was also the first person in the UK to interview Gregory Porter in November 2010 & was the first UK presenter to cover a new & groundbreaking jazz festival in Sardinia called My Jazz Islands – Le mie isole jazz in June 2013.
