bio

Hello!

I’m a writer and audio producer based in Los Angeles.

I got my start in newspapers, as a community reporter for the Los Angeles Times and later a staff writer at the Orange County Register. I made the pivot to audio in 2016, after a Transom workshop, and have since produced documentaries for public radio and podcasts, including for KPCC, KCRW and the BBC. I’ve also contributed bylines to Marketplace.org and Refinery29.

On top of my freelance, I’m a multimedia storyteller for USC, producing stories — both digital and audio — on everything from the health risks of Netflix bingeing to millennial home buying (or lack thereof). I launched its audio storytelling vertical, producing public-radio style docs, such as how certain people get the chills from music or how having high brow tastes could give you a leg up.

I’m not tied to a beat, just love a good story. I’ve lived in a pod, shadowed a personal shopper and investigated the state’s shutdown of a local police academy — which led to cops across the Southland being stripped of their guns and put on desk jobs.

I’ve won an L.A. Times editorial award and been recognized for investigative journalism, feature writing and public affairs writing. I’m also well-versed in all things digital — a former social media editor and have an SEO certification from Yoast.

Right now, I’m helping former Newsweek editor Bill Barol launch the podcast Everybody Lies. If you have a story to tell, check out this survey. I’m also editing a podcast for Twitter, set to debut in early 2019.

When I’m not working, you can find me hiking Temescal Canyon, bingeing true crime anything or writing comedy.
