I’m a Minneapolis-based radiomaker and reporter whose work has been featured locally and nationally via the BBC, PRI’s The World, NPR, and Latino USA among other outlets. I produce arts and culture stories for KFAI’s “Minneculture” series and have been recognized by the Minnesota chapter of the Society for Professional Journalists with two awards for my radio features reporting. I am a regular contributor to Minnesota Monthly magazine and have also reported for MinnPost, The New York Daily News, and MovieMaker Magazine.
I got my start in radio as a producer for the award-winning programs On Being (2009-13) and American RadioWorks (now APM Reports, 2008-9). Earlier in my career, I ran educational programs for youth and adults in NYC.
I’m a graduate of the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies and hold a Master’s degree in Education from Harvard University and a BA in English from Haverford College.
I am also a founding board member and board chair of Contempo Physical Dance, Minnesota’s only Afro-Brazilian contemporary dance company. When I’m not making radio, I dance and perform with Rueda de la Calle, a Minneapolis-based Cuban social dance group.
