About Noah

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.
