I love to tell stories about people whose voices you might not usually hear. Amongst many adventures, I’ve gone diving with elderly mermaids in Korea, riding with young rodeo champions in Chile and interviewed a North Korean film director with his leading lady.

My work has appeared on places like National Geographic Television & Film, PBS’ To the Contrary, and PRI’s The World. I’ve also been a producer for various PBS Kids series, including Arthur, Fetch, and Postcards from Buster. Which makes me a celebrity in fourth grade classrooms.

In my free time, I can often be found stoop-sitting, collecting oral histories, and chasing my precocious toddler — sometimes all at the same time.
