Work Samples – Audio Storytelling

Generation Putin (2014)

Hour long public radio special produced in collaboration with PRX.

I co-reported this show with Sarah Stuteville and Alex Stonehill, and was responsible for field recording, writing, directing host and producer recording (not that Brooke Gladstone needed much direction!), and all sound engineering, mixing and design. Martha Little was our editor. John Barth Executive Produced. The piece won the 2014 Edward R. Murrow award for Audio Documentary.

Mistakes Were Made (2022-Present)

I produce Mistakes were Made, including some on-mic time, and all recording, editing, engineering, and distribution. This is a super informal, zero budget project that we record at the hosts’ kitchen table.

Making Contact (2021-2023)

A favorite episode from my time at Making Contact.

I was Interim Executive Director and then Interim Senior Producer at Making Contact from 2021-2023. I contributed to the show in various ways, including as editor, managing editor, occasional producer, and occasional co-host. (More episodes I worked on here)

The Deep End with Reagan Jackson and Anastacia Renee (2017-Present)

A favorite episode of the Deep End

I have supported this podcast in various ways, from providing recording equipment to recording a few episodes to helping with podcast hosting and distribution. The episode above is one I recorded as a hybrid of remote and in person (the hosts were in person while the guest was remote), and it also happens to be one of my favorites.

Behind the Tech with Kevin Scott (2022-Present)

In my role as Podcast Producer at RUN Studios, I produce this podcast as part of a team. I’m responsible for remote recordings, and for managing all phases of production and distribution.
