Most of my time day-to-day is taken up by my work at Lemonada Media, but I'm open to side projects, too. I get particularly excited about sound design, music composition, trailer creation, and field production/tape sync gigs.

About Tony

As an audio producer, I came of age making beats in my parents’ basement. My background in music has led to a natural flair for editing, mixing, and arrangement, and they've been incredibly useful as I've worked on everything from audiobooks to investigative audio documentaries.

My most recent project was the #1 show on Apple Podcasts, Lemonada Media's Blind Plea. I came on as an Associate Producer, but my skill level meant that I often take on Producer-level work as well. For example, I wrote and produced the trailer for the show, which helped it hit #1 within 4 days of launch. After the show ended, I was brought on a permanent full-time employee - these days I'm working on a variety of yet-to-be-announced shows.

I've also produced three shows start-to-finish:

- Murderhobos, a biography podcast looking at historical men-at-arms and their conceptions of masculinity.

- What’s Good Man? a podcast on the search for healthy masculinity with national poetry slam winner Kyle “Guante” Tran Myhre

- Enough Is Enough: A 150 Year Performance Review Of The Minneapolis Police Department, an project by Minneapolis activist collective MPD150

Along the way, I've produced freelance work for a variety of clients, including Audible, Crooked Media, and KFAI, among others. I've worked as a researcher, a writer, an engineer, and a post-production specialist. I graduated from the SALT Institute for Documentary Studies in December 2022 after deciding to further my knowledge of documentary ethics and story structure.
