Emily is available forI'm interested in a narrative journalism on a wide range of subjects, especially science, health, urbanism, food, and oddities. I'm a strong writer, fact-checker, tape cutter, layup-maker, and editor. Also available for show development, booking, and tape syncs.
I’m Emily. I tell stories with audio and writing. I mainly cover science, domestic and global health, food systems, and gender issues. My work has run on NPR’s website and air. Most recently I produced and reported episodes of the NPR daily science podcast Short Wave. Before that I was a documentary fellow at the University of New Hampshire Sustainability Institute. And before that, I did a bunch of things like get indoor farms to switch to LED lighting, co-found a beekeeping apprenticeship program at the first (legal) commercial apiary in New York City, manage biodiversity programs for a national network of food justice activists, and curate events series at indie bookstores in Brooklyn. I’m a graduate of the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies and I have a BA in biology from Kenyon College. I have a dog named Eno (after the river and the musician). He wants to be your friend, but it might take him a while to work up the courage. We’re a lot alike. I’m originally from Raleigh, North Carolina, and I’m working on figuring out where to call home next. I’m available for audio production, freelance assignments, and fact checking.
Honeybees Need Your Help, Honey
This is an episode of NPR's daily science podcast, Short Wave. I built the episode around this researcher because he's a fantastic talker, and he became the show's first repeat guest just a month later. I pitched, pre-interviewed, scripted, edited, scored, fact checked, and produced the episode.
