Tasha is available forI love helping stories get told. From storyfinding to capturing audio through field reporting and tape syncing, to reporting and mixing—this work keeps me running. I particularly magnet to projects highlighting marginalized people and communities. I'm up for 1-time gigs as well as joining in a larger, longer capacity for the right project and team.
In this feature for This Is Nashville — WPLN's daily show — I spent a day at Larkspur Conservation and stood witness to one man's grief.
I travelled to Memphis, Tennessee for this piece and interviewed a 15-year-old fashion entrepreneur.
As the executive producer of the, narrative fiction, Mr. Mysterio Podcast [on hold], I have my fingers in everything from securing talent, to finding and scheduling studio time, to recording, producing and mixing, to creating foley, graphic design and working with actors and composers. I love this show. Take a listen to my favorite episode: Season 1, Episode 7, Riptide.
I have a background in nonprofit work within our homeless community and was stunned to see hunger becoming a sudden and acute issue during the pandemic—particularly for people living in campsites. I covered this piece from inception to reporting and final production while navigating the new world of social distancing and also making sure the voices of people with lived homelessness were heard.
This piece covers nearly a year of reporting on a decades-long case. In this piece, I unravel the story of Pervis Payne, a man with an intellectual disability sentenced to death, and the court battles to remove him from The Row.
1 year after a massive tornado carved through middle Tennessee, I traveled to a small town with the highest death toll. In this piece, one pastor tells the story of helping his community navigate their grief—while still in the middle of his own.
As covid started to lift, nearly a dozen campsites in Nashville where unhoused people live were slated for closure and the city launched a new transitional housing program. I covered this piece from inception to reporting, photography and final production.
Throughout this award-winning series, I covered 6 tape syncs for Dolly Parton's America as well as some live music recording and shipping a few court documents. In this episode, I recorded Justin Hiltner's interview and banjo performances. [From 23:25]
