I make longform, narrative driven audio stories.
I’m currently a senior producer with Pushkin Industries, where I mainly work behind the scenes as an editor/story producer on Deep Cover, a serialized show hosted by Jake Halpern. For season one, The Drug Wars, we told the story of a former FBI agent who spent years living as two different people while he investigated one the largest drug smuggling operations in history. Deep Cover reached #6 on the Apple charts within days of launching.
I also recently produced FAUCI, a three hour audio documentary/book about the life and career of Dr. Anthony Fauci. Within weeks of release, FAUCI became the #1 most listened to nonfiction audiobook on Audible.
Before joining the team at Pushkin, I covered health for WXXI, the NPR station in Rochester, NY, and hosted Exited, a podcast about young adults with disabilities exiting the school system. I developed Exited at NPR’s Story Lab and it was later recognized by the NY State Associated Press Association for “Best Podcast,” the NY State Broadcasters Association for “Outstanding Use of Digital Platforms” and PRNDI as a top podcast. My radio features have also aired on programs like NPR’s Morning Edition and WBUR’s Here and Now.
I did my first narrative driven audio piece back in 2015 for WHYY’s The Pulse–a story about one man who traveled out of state for better chances of getting a liver transplant–which later received a national award from the Association of Health Care journalists.
I also teach an advanced narrative podcast production course at the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY.
Before coming over to the audio world, I produced television shows and documentary films.
