About Steven

I'm a podcast and multimedia producer. I help journalists and news outlets launch media products and tell impactful and diverse stories in unique ways. I do everything from writing to producing, reporting, recording, and mixing, but more importantly, I help others to do the same.

I'm a skilled leader, communicator and coordinator and have managed numerous complex media projects simultaneously. I'm extremely passionate about teaching, mentoring and enabling others, especially for people who can't typically get it elsewhere.

I played a major role in developing sustainable podcast and video production workflows at the Long Beach Post where I worked on over 150 media projects.

Before that I spent more than a decade engineering live sound for churches and punk bands, then my ears started ringing and I switched to journalism and podcasting instead.
