SELECTED WORKS

We Must Ignite

Host/Producer/Sound Wizard – June 2018 (ongoing)

We Must Ignite is a documentary podcast about women, non-binary people, and trans men pursuing their passions in the arts. As the show’s producer and audio engineer, I record all active tape, edit scripts, and produce the final mix for the episode. I also composed the show’s theme song and audio signature.

Is This How Everyone Pays for Healthcare?

Reporter/Producer – August 26th 2018

This story is about two things: a disease that’s more common than many people think, and the new normal for how we pay for healthcare in this country. I reported this story in under 24 hours for KCRW’s 2018 Radio Race. I also composed the ending music.

Making Cities Work – Noise Pollution

Reporter – Published January 2018

I pitched, recorded, and wrote this story for WHYY’s science and health show, The Pulse. I looked into just why noise pollution matters and talked with downtown Phoenix residents about how to reduce excess sound in high-density urban environments.

Deported welcomed by locals and Americans in Mexico

Reporter – Published October 2017

In spring 2017, I was part of a Cronkite News project reporting on the Mexican states of Guanajuato and Querétero. I spent a week reporting on efforts to attract Mexicans deported from the U.S. to come to the town of San Miguel de Allende. The town is a popular tourist destination and has a high U.S. expatriate population.

Deconstructed

Producer – September to December 2016

Deconstructed is news magazine podcast about downtown Phoenix and community issues. I was the show’s producer, and I edited scripts, recorded supplemental audio, and produced the final show. It was a part of the college publication Downtown Devil. I was an editor at Downtown Devil, and my responsibilities included teaching multimedia journalism students best-practices for audio reporting.
