About DavidI'm an audio storyteller who has spent the past three years covering complex topics like mental health issues, the opioid epidemic, public health, trauma, and rural healthcare as a producer, host, writer, editor and sound designer.
Currently, I'm reporting/producing a long-form enterprise piece about a senior citizen dance group coping with the COVID-19 pandemic for the Nashville Public Radio podcast Neighbors, and I'm reporting/producing short spots about music education for the Nashville Public Radio podcast The Promise. I'm also reporting/producing/editing a multi-part narrative podcast series that I developed focused on the mental health impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In February 2020, I completed Transom's public radio production traveling workshop with Rob Rosenthal and Meribah Knight at WPLN. I've also been selected by Report for America as a 2019-20 and 2020-21 corps finalist and a member of their RFA Journalist Network.
My work has been heard on outlets such as WAMC Northeast Public Radio, PRX Remix and the nationally syndicated public radio program 51%. I've also produced, engineered and edited podcast content for organizations like Major League Soccer, Vanderbilt University and Marie Forleo International. My other relevant experience includes work as a copy editor, a photographer/videographer and a freelance feature writer for Nashville's daily newspaper, The Tennessean.
After growing up in Nebraska, Colorado and Illinois, I moved to Nashville, Tennessee, where I graduated from Belmont University and worked as a professional songwriter and recording/touring musician.
