I’ve worked full-time in radio since 2008 as a producer, editor, engineer, mixer, composer, and music supervisor.
I’m a staff producer at KCRW (Santa Monica, CA). I’m a Contributing Editor for The Organist, a podcast co-produced by KCRW and The Believer magazine, and an occasional contributor/producer for UnFictional, KCRW’s documentary series. My piece for UnFictional, “The Ghosts of Fire Island“, won First Place (Large Newsroom Documentary category) at the 2014 Public Radio News Directors awards, and Second Place (Radio Documentary) at the 2014 L.A. Press Club awards. Previously, I served as Music Supervisor for KCRW’s Strangers from 2012-2014. I also briefly managed KCRW’s Independent Producer Project, which provides indie and freelance contributors with development, production, and editorial tools to bring their stories to KCRW’s listeners.
My freelance clientele includes This American Life, BBC, 99% Invisible, TED Radio Hour (NPR), New Yorker Radio Hour (WNYC), the Getty Museum (Los Angeles), Latino USA, Pop Up Magazine, Note to Self (WNYC), PBS Masterpiece Studio (WGBH), FiveThirtyEight, Radio Wolfgang (UK), Slate.com, National Endowment for the Arts, Studio 360 (WNYC), USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, Harvard Business School, On the Media (WNYC), The Big Listen (WAMU), Monocle (UK), and many others.
In a former life, I was the Senior Radio Producer for L.A. Theatre Works, where I worked with an incredible array of playwrights to adapt their original stage plays to the audio medium, including Neil LaBute, David Auburn, Kenneth Lonergan, Moisés Kaufman, Charles Busch, Stephen Adly Guirgis, Michael Hollinger, and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. In addition, I produced over 100 interviews and features which illuminated the real-world issues beneath the plays, including interviews with paleontologists, reproductive ethicists, neuroscientists, religious scholars, ghost-hunters, mapmakers, and more. I continue to pitch in there from time to time as a Consulting Producer.
And, of course, I keep one foot in the experimental/radio art world, with recent commissions, live performances, and broadcast compositions for Radio Revolten (Halle, Germany), Museo Reina Sofía (Madrid), Radius (Chicago), framework radio (Estonia), SNYK (Copenhagen), and DUBBELRADIO (Farsta, Sweden).
I’m always happy to discuss new projects and possibilities. Please drop me a note if you have something exciting to share!
