About Jen

I've been working in documentary and journalism for 10+ years and audio for 5+. I love nothing more than a good, brutal edit, and I'm always looking for collaborators who like to go deep, get honest, and make work alongside our sources.

My stories -- in audio, feature writing, and photography -- have appeared at Snap Judgment, BBC, WHYY, The World, and many more.

As a producer for Vice News Reports, a podcast by Vice News, I reported and hosted a 3-part series about schools arming their teachers, and was lead producer on an episode that won a Third Coast Award for Best Doc (Silver) and an award from the International Documentary Association.

Now that I'm back to freelance, I'm looking for more work as a story editor, on top of still being available to report, produce, and field record.
