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 developing the new New Yorker Radio Hour, which is a coproduction of WNYC and The New Yorker. In this position, I work with editors, writers, cartoonists and contributors to develop a radio program and podcast in the spirit of the magazine. Within a dozen weeks of launch, we were airing on 100 stations across the country and were building a strong podcast subscribership.
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've produced a soundscape about the effort to save New York City's endangered languages, some New Yorker cartoonist delight, David Remnick in conversation with Ta-Nehisi Coates, a story about a father trying to stop long-standing violence between two Harlem housing projects, and 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.
