Corinne is available forI'm most passionate about working on a team to empower the right person to tell an important story that can help listeners better understand their world. Reporting, researching, cutting tape and developing audio scenes is what lights me up most as a journalist and producer. But I also have the experience and drive to help shape narrative arcs as a story editor through collaborative scripting. I would love to work with small teams to help turn fantastic ideas into beautiful, compelling audio stories.
