Noah is available forI'm currently available to do tape syncs and freelance reporting in the Bay Area.
I am a freelance journalist and audio producer based in Berkeley, California. I work in audio, print, and digital media.
I got my start in audio in 2016 when my love of storytelling motivated me to pick up a mic and start recording interviews in my home community of western Massachusetts. Since then, I have worked as a freelancer and my audio work has been published by New England Public Radio, Valley Free Radio, KALX, and more.
I worked as a Producer on the second season of American Public Media’s Field Work podcast and interned for WBUR’s Endless Thread podcast.
These days, I’m a student at UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism where I am studying audio production and investigative reporting.
My technical skills include recording high quality audio in the field and editing and mixing stories using Audition. I also have plenty of experience writing scripts, tracking narration, booking and pre-interviewing guests, and pretty much everything else that goes into making a compelling podcast or radio story.
I also work as a print journalist and in 2020, I covered the Oakland Police Department for Oakland North, a publication of the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism. Before that, I wrote a weekly agriculture column for the Daily Hampshire Gazette newspaper for a year and a half.
Fearing political persecution, the Gabriel Family fled Sudan and moved to West Springfield, Massachusetts. But in 2019, their attention was drawn back to their homeland when massive protests erupted in the nation’s capital, Khartoum. I reported this story, recorded the interviews, and edited the audio.
I was the lead producer on 10 episodes of Field Work‘s second season, including “Getting Edgy,” which looked into new technologies that keep nutrients from running off farm fields and into rivers. You won’t hear my voice in this episode, but I pre-interviewed and booked these guests, wrote the host intro scripts and questions, and coordinated the recording logistics. I also did the first round of content edits on this episode, and assembled the first draft of the mix in Audition.
