Audio Work

I’m a radio host, reporter and producer.

At KQED I produce Bay Curious, which answers listener questions about the Bay Area,
I also fill in for KQED’s daily news podcast, The Bay.

I currently co-teach weekly radio classes through KALW at California State Prison Solano.
As part of the class, the men produce the show Uncuffed, which I edit.
The stories air on KALW, and in 2019 will be heard statewide on The California Report.

I also teach workshops at the Advanced Media Institute at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism.

Last year, I co-hosted, produced and engineered the third season of Raw Material for SFMOMA.

I have also worked at WWOZ, KPFA, and KALW and my stories have appeared on the California Report, Marketplace and All Things Considered.
