About Alaa

Hello! I'm an audio producer and public radio journalist based in Oakland, CA.

I currently manage production and produce stories for Reveal with The Center for Investigative Reporting. Before that, I reported on a freelance/internship basis for NPR, KQED Public Radio, KALW, Alaska Public Media and The New York Times as I earned my Masters degree in journalism at UC Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism, with a focus in audio and data reporting. 

Today, I'm most interested in continuing to grow as a producer of audio stories, whether those are self-reported or in collaboration with other reporters and newsrooms. I'm most inspired by audio makers that effectively capture in between spaces, especially through arts and culture stories, or stories about  love/relationships/intimacy. And in my individual reporting, I'm currently most passionate reporting stories about health equity, housing, and/or aging. You can read/listen to some of my work here. And you can learn more about my professional interests on the POC in Audio directory. 

When I’m not working or listening to something, you may find me writing very short fiction, riding my bike, watching both great and terrible movies, or tearing up over a poem by Safia Elhillo.
