I’m an award winning audio producer and reporter based in Minneapolis. My work has been featured locally and internationally via the BBC, PRI’s The World, NPR, and Latino USA among other outlets. I have produced dozens of arts and culture features on everything from Prince to urban ice fishing for KFAI community radio’s “Minneculture” series and podcast. I’ve been recognized by the Minnesota chapter of the Society for Professional Journalists with five awards for my radio and digital features reporting. I’ve also reported for MinnPost, Minnesota Monthly, The New York Daily News, and MovieMaker Magazine.
I got my start in public 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 New York City.
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.
