About Sara

I am a Brooklyn-based print and audio storyteller from Boulder, Colorado. I am currently freelance, working with multiple audio companies and organizations on the production of podcasts and original audiobooks. Recently, I have helped produce several podcasts for Pushkin Industries, Audible, and American Public Media. I wrote and produced "McCartney: A Life and Lyrics", and I was the associate producer for "A Slight Change of Plans" with Dr. Maya Shankar, a science and storytelling podcast which won Best Personal Growth podcast at the 2023 Ambies. I am also an associate producer and researcher for the Center For Humane Technology's podcast, "Your Undivided Attention," which is distributed by TED Audio Collective. I am drawn to roles with a strong editorial focus, whether that be writing, narrative development, researching, interview prepping, fact-checking, etc. I also cut tape in ProTools and Descript! I prioritize stories and projects which are deeply thoughtful and formally innovative. In this age of abundant content and crises, I am interested in narratives which make us reconsider the structures in which we live and the stories we tell ourselves. I graduated from Wesleyan University in 2021, and I'm currently a scholar in the New School of the Anthropocene, a London-based interdisciplinary collective studying the environmental humanities.
