I'm an audio storyteller who has spent the past three years covering critical, delicate topics like mental health issues, the opioid epidemic, public health, trauma, and rural healthcare as a producer, host, writer, editor and sound designer. I'm passionate about storytelling that unravels complex issues, shines a light on undercovered angles and elevates marginalized voices.
Currently, I'm reporting a feature story for WPLN News about a group of senior citizens finding resilience through community during the COVID-19 pandemic in Nashville's Hadley Park neighborhood, I'm contributing a second feature story to WAMC's 51%, and I'm producing/editing a multi-part narrative podcast series that I developed on the mental health impact of the pandemic.
In February 2020, I completed Transom's public radio production traveling workshop with Rob Rosenthal and Meribah Knight at WPLN. I've also been selected by Report for America as a 2019-20 and 2020-21 corps finalist and a member of the RFA Journalist Network. 
My work has been heard on outlets such as WPLN News, WAMC Northeast Public Radio, Nashville Public Radio podcasts The Promise and Neighbors, PRX Remix and the nationally syndicated public radio program 51%. I've also produced, engineered and edited podcast content for organizations like Major League Soccer, Vanderbilt University and Marie Forleo International. My other relevant experience includes work as a copy editor, a photographer/videographer and a freelance writer for Nashville's daily newspaper, The Tennessean. 
After growing up in Nebraska, Colorado and Illinois, I moved to Nashville, Tennessee, where I graduated from Belmont University and worked as an award-winning songwriter and recording/touring musician.
Thanks for listening!
