Hi! I’m Juliet Hinely, a freelance story producer and sound designer.
I produce, edit, sound design, and consult on narrative audio works for podcasts, audio tours, hybrid projects, and beyond. Check out my Services tab to see all the ways we can work together :)
I’ve been working in audio since 2010 when I began experimenting with audio tours as a method of site-specific storytelling. Since then, I have lived and worked in San Francisco making immersive audio tours and managing production at Detour, I’ve worked at Audible to help develop and produce their original comedy and educational podcast programming, and won a Peabody as Senior Producer on the NPR-distributed podcast Believed with the team at Michigan Radio. Now I’m based in wonderful Ypsilanti, Michigan, where I work locally and long-distance thanks to the magic of video conferencing. I also travel for teaching engagements and great projects.
I love sound for its ability to expand a story and seep deep into our imagination. It is the closest thing to time travel.
I earned my MFA from the University of Michigan Stamps School of Art and Design with a focus in Sound and Story. I'm a co-founder and co-curator of the live listening event series Radio Campfire, and I host a small audio artist residency called The Listen Inn.
