About Me

I began at NPR's DC headquarters in 2008 as an intern on All Things Considered; after that I worked at All Things Considered and Weekend All Things Considered before being hired full-time at Morning Edition, where in 2011 I directed live coverage the night Osama bin Laden's assassination was announced; in late 2013 I relocated to NPR West in Los Angeles, where I continue to produce for Morning Edition.

Outside of NPR, from 2009-2013 I produced audio installations for dc listening lounge's annual "Sound Scene" events; in 2012 I joined the writing staff of The Charlie Visconage Show; in 2013 I created/wrote DC's acclaimed installation "The Time Machine: A Scientific Romance."

Before that, I attended Penn State, a college that I graduated from in exchange for money and schoolwork. I was a reporter and editor for The Daily Collegian and hosted/reported for NPR member station WPSU-FM.
