About Jennifer

I got my start at alt-weeklies, where I developed a style of voice and learned to dig for unique stories that weren't being covered elsewhere. Having been drawn to audio for its immersive storytelling possibilities and the reach of its audience, I've since worked as a freelance producer for KCRW's Design & Architecture, where I've reported on stories that examine the intersections of culture, development, and displacement. I'm looking to work on narrative, reported projects that harness audio for maximum impact and entertainment.
