I’m a writer and audio producer based in Los Angeles. I spend most of my time producing podcasts, including documentaries and chat shows, for Neon Hum Media.
I’m proud to have developed and led the Neon Hum original series Spectacle, which debuted in 2021. The first season tackled reality TV — what our obsession says about us and how it informs our culture. We talked about American tribalism on Survivor, immigration tropes on 90 Day Fiancé and dissected the problematic fave that is The Bachelor franchise. As the showrunner, I led the writing, reporting and producing of the 10 episode season. Big shoutout to our brilliant host and co-producer Mariah Smith and composer Andrew Eapen, who customized cues for each episode. The Atlantic, TIME, Vogue, Esquire and Vulture named it one of the best podcasts of 2021. I would go on to work on season 2 on Las Vegas and develop/produce season 3, Spectacle: True Crime.
Other shows I’ve worked on include CBS News: Missing Justice, Townsizing with Anne Helen Petersen, Urban Legends with the Ghost Brothers (S1), ESPN Investigates: The Running Man and Telescope: Life in the Time of Corona. My Telescope episodes got shoutouts in The New Yorker and The New York Times.
Prior to Neon Hum, I was an independent producer, reporting features for local NPR affiliates KPCC and KCRW and the BBC. I also made podcasts for Pod People — including Twitter’s podcast Character Count — and led projects for Neon Hum. I got my start in newspapers, with bylines in the L.A. Times and OC Register, covering local government, business and crime. I am a proud Transom workshop alum.
When I’m not working, you can find me looking for L.A.’s secret stairs, watching Vanderpump Rules and making pottery.
