A bit about me
Hey, I’m Ashley! Although you’ve probably gathered that by now given that you’re on my site. I’m a presenter and DJ living in London.
You can listen to me on my Hoxton Radio show every Friday from 2pm-4pm from anywhere in the world at www.hoxtonradio.com. I’ve recently been nominated and shortlisted for an IARA Award for Best FM / UK Radio DJ, which I’m so excited about. I’m crazy about rap, Hip Hop, trap, grime, and R&B. My love affair with music started when I was very young and I had my first radio show at the tender age of 7 (granted it was just on my own tape recorder taking songs from the radio and making my parents record the adverts, but it was a start). I got my first taste of real presenting at sixteen when I secured work experience at BBC Radio Cumbria, and then went onto work on URN, the University of Nottingham’s radio station, whilst studying for my BA (hons) French & English Literature degree (bonjour). I was also given a guest show on Rinse FM.
In terms of presenting, I have just been taken on as the main presenter on a brand new channel launching very soon on Sky and Satellite. It’s yet to be announced so I can’t tell you too much yet, but it involves me experiencing lots of luxury around the world. I’ve also hosted a series of Facebook Live shows for Hollyoaks, which has taken me on set and to the Soap Awards Red Carpet. Previous to that, I hosted a 12 episode series called Style Stars on PopGirlTV, a channel on Sky and Freeview. The show saw me set fashion challenges to teenage girls. I regularly host red carpet events, and festivals, including hosting the main stage at Festifeel, a festival curated by Fearne Cotton for the breast cancer awareness charity CoppaFeel!. I’ve presented at Clothes Show Live, for Clothes Show TV, online fashion channel Fashtag, and even backstage at the X Factor. You can view my latest showreel to the right.
Other TV appearances include Celebrity Dinner Dates (ITV), Big Brother’s Bit on the Side (channel 5), When Celebrity Goes Horribly Wrong (Channel 5), Wild Things (Sky One).
As well as working as a presenter, I also DJ alongside my friend and fellow presenter Charlotte de Carle under the name the BitterSweet DJ’s. Our upbeat sound has earned us residency at London’s hotspot Lights of Soho, has seen us DJ alongside Groove Armada, and for brands including the Glamour awards, Cosmopolitan magazine, Notion magazine, Coca Cola, Rimmel, Folli Follie, and French Connection. We are also the official DJ’s for the Global Gift Gala foundation, which sees us DJ around the world alongside some of the biggest music artists.
We are also gaining lots of attention in the UK with editorials in 1883 mag and Notion magazine, and have just signed to a DJ agency Noisy Kitchen.
I also have a column for the Huffington Post, and my views and opinions around female empowerment earned me a guest column in Closer Magazine. I have modelling agencies in London, Milan, Istanbul, Australia, Germany, and New York. I’ve recently fronted a campaign for George swimwear.. Finally there’s this website, which obviously takes up a lot of my time, so I hope you enjoy it.
Anyway, that’s enough about me, thanks for stopping by my site, I hope you enjoy it. You can keep up to date with what I’m up to on my News page, or contact me on the contact page (obviously).
