Bio: Former teacher, currently podcast/radio freelancer. I got my start teaching myself documentary radio while working as a teacher in Brooklyn. My first project was an audio doc on the complexities of charter school special education.
Since then I've received a masters in journalism from Columbia University and have worked in various capacities for NPR newscasts, WNYC, Marketplace, The Story with Dick Gordon and Appalshop's Prison Poetry Workshop series. I've freelanced for Snap Judgment, PRI's The World and Studio 360. My piece with Studio 360 won a New York Associated Press award for best feature in 2014.
The bulk of my professional experience has been on the radio show and podcast BackStory, first as an associate producer and then as senior producer. I've managed every aspect of the production, a ten person staff, completely overhauled the production schedule and got the show on Panoply.fm's podcast network.
I currently live between Charlottesville and DC and am available for reporting, tape syncs, audio postcards and research.
