About Claire

For the last 9 years, I've worked at NPR member stations around the country, mostly as an education reporter. While daily reporting was always required, my real passion is longform storytelling. I've worked on investigations, longform audio stories, and podcasts while working at KUT, the NPR station in Austin. 

I also teach audio storytelling at the University of Texas and love working with students wanting to learn the ins and outs of audio production and script writing. 

I'm looking to spend more time in longform audio, specifically with script editing and producing. I love working collaboratively on a story and playing around with story structure. I want to help you make your story or podcast be accessible to all listeners and shine!
