- Nashville, TN
I'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 a freelance producer/reporter with WPLN in Nashville, Tennessee. Recently, I've reported a WPLN News feature story about a community line dancing class, produced a long-form enterprise piece about a group of African American seniors coping with the COVID-19 pandemic for their podcast Neighbors and produced short spots about music education for their podcast The Promise. I'm also independently reporting, producing, editing and managing a multipart 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 lead instructor Rob Rosenthal and reporter Meribah Knight. 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 WPLN News, 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 Medical Center and Marie Forleo International. My other relevant experience includes work as a copy editor, a photographer/videographer and a freelance 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 an award-winning songwriter and recording/touring musician.
