Reporter, producer, writer, editor
A teary-eyed farmer recalls his family's struggle to hold onto the farm in the 1980s. A biologist, assiduously disguised to hide her humanity, provides nutrition to an abandoned sea otter pup. Candidates loudly proclaim their memorized commitments to Iowa communities. Alaska Native teens recall their parents' agony at discovering their struggles with substance abuse. These are among the stories I've collected.
My work has aired nationally on NPR shows including Morning Edition, All Things Considered and Weekend Edition and on Marketplace, Living on Earth, and The Pulse. I've written for the Boston Globe, The New York Times, Real Simple, BioScience, and Newsweek. My podcast credits include Bay Curious, Caucus Land, Drive-Time, Field Work, and The California Report Magazine. I've been an editor at St. Louis Public Radio, a reporter at Iowa Public Radio, and a contributor to KQED, WFCR and KUAC. My insatiable curiosity drives my constant search for the next great piece.
