I'm a multimedia editor, producer and journalist. I've reported from the frosty forests of the Great North Woods, managed a team of East African reporters, covered breaking news in South Asia, trained fledgeling radio hosts at a microstation in Kibera, performed radio every week in front of a live studio audience, and produced hours on gender, ecstatic creativity, mortality, giving, beauty, privacy, poetry, wonder, narrative identity, and a whole lot more.

I'm currently producer and assignment editor at the New Yorker Radio Hour, which is a coproduction of WNYC and The New Yorker. I help editors, writers, cartoonists and contributors create a program in the spirit of The New Yorker.  

As a founding producer on the program, I've worked with leaders from the magazine and WNYC to shape the tone, content and style of the program. I've coached magazine staffers and contributors in radio production, writing and delivery. I produced this profile of Leonard Cohen, with David Remnick, and helped Jon Lee Anderson tell the tale of his encounter with people from one of the last remaining uncontacted tribes in the Amazon. I produced this story of an island community endangered by climate change, where most residents don't believe the science. I made this piece about an old schoolhouse in Buffalo, New York, where hundreds of refugees from around the globe live in limbo. I've created a soundscape about the effort to save New York City's endangered languages, some New Yorker cartoonist delight, a story about the obsessive hunt for Nazi goldand much more.

Prior to this, I worked as a producer, interviewer and fill-in host for To the Best of Our Knowledge, as the announcer for Michael Feldman's Whad'Ya Know?, as a South Asia reporter and producer for Radio Netherlands Worldwide, as a chase producer for the Canadian Broadcasting  Corporation, as a host and news producer for the Maine Public Broadcasting Network, and as a journalism trainer for the African Woman and Child Feature Service. I've also produced freelance radio and print stories for various media.
