About Hannah

I'm a bilingual audio producer, journalist, and marketing professional. I've worked with Sonoro, Foreign Policy, City Limits, and more, with a particular focus on long-form narrative shows. Much of my work touches on Latin American communities in the U.S. and abroad.

I have a Master’s in Journalism with a focus in International and audio reporting from the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY.

Previously, I worked in marketing, communications, and social media for clients that included USAID, Bloomberg Philanthropies, and other major corporations and advocacy groups.

I'm originally from the suburbs of Chicago, and lived in Washington, D.C. before moving to Brookyln.
