About Alia

I'm an emerging audio producer and recent graduate of KALW's Audio Academy training program. Among other things, I am interested in long- and short-form storytelling about changing landscapes, living archives, and cultural production.  

Before turning to audio storytelling, I spent a decade in grassroots organizing in Seattle, Washington. My background is in public health, and I've worked in the legal, non-profit, and food services industries. My varied history brought me to the same conclusion: There is always a story to be told.
