I am an audio senior level audio producer, story editor, sound designer and composer. My experience covers nearly 10 years of podcast, radio and audio documentary production and creative development. I specialise in working with experimental narrative forms and sounds.
In the past I curated and dissected thousands of hours of audio art and documentary while working with Third Coast International Audio Festival and produced series and features features from around the world with The Washington Post. My stories and music have appeared on podcasts, radio, theatre and in the halls of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Recently my clients include Pineapple Street Studios, Pushkin Industries, iHeart Media, Exile Studios, Narratively, Marriot Bonvoy and others.
I work around the world, but all of my stuff lives at a home studio in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
On a little island sandwiched between Miami Beach and mainland Florida sits an old pink apartment complex called The Lido. It’s unlike anything around it; a remnant of an old Miami. One of the tenants, Paula Barros, guides us through this colorful building and the colorful people who live there. There’s Eddie, the exhausted HOA Board President, a stickler for rules and a sucker for his cat. Evan, an aspiring travel influencer trying to work through hundreds of bucket list goals. Ragnar, an amateur taxidermist. Payami, who only calls himself that because it rhymes with Miami. At The Lido, Paula learns what it means to show up for people, and how to let them show up for her.
Two decades ago a nun in Miami was stabbed nearly 100 times on the grounds of a prestigious private academy and monastery, by Mykhaylo Kofel. As investigators started asking questions around this Byzantine Catholic School and the gruesome murder, they found more than just her killer. In a search for answers that stretches into some of the most remote villages of Eastern Europe, they uncovered allegations of sexual abuse, secret letters to the Vatican and other mysteries of faith. Sacred Scandal unravels the fuller picture that came to light in the wake of this crime. Led by a former student, told by those who lived through the aftermath, and Kofel himself, the show pieces together a complicated narrative that, twenty years later, still has those closest to it questioning what they truly believe... including a man who’s spent half his life in prison for the crime: “It’s so unbelievable. It definitely wasn’t me. I’m not a killer. No way. That’s not me.” — Mykhaylo Kofel, 2021 Hosted by Paula Barros and Melanie Bartley
