What’s your favourite place in Gibraltar and why?
I'd have to say 'The 50p' which is located up the rock. I just love going there, especially in the summer and just chill and listen to some music and enjoy the spectacular breath taking views of the Straight of Gibraltar.
Tell us something about Gibraltar that not everyone knows?
The Jews Gate in the Upper Rock has many of Gibraltar’s most important Chief Rabbis buried and many people from the Jewish community come to visit.
And something about you that not everyone knows?
When I was younger, I was very much involved in the modelling / fashion scene in Gibraltar. Having participated in various competitions and fashion shows locally. This is something that is totally out of my comfort zone now!
What’s your favourite thing to do on the Rock?
I just love going to my favourite spots and chill by listening to music and enjoying the views. However, my fave thing to do is going up the rock and observe the macaques. They are incredibly intelligent animals and are just so interesting to watch.
If you weren’t presenting on Rock Radio, what would you be doing?
Pretty much what I do on a daily basis. Go to work, spin some tunes and spend time with my loved ones... and OBVIOUSLY listening to the best radio on the Rock... Rock Radio
