Believed

Michigan Radio & NPR

Senior Producer

Advice from Mom

Independent podcast from 

Wise Ones Advice Services

Producer & Editor

Believed is an 8-part narrative and investigative podcast about the women who brought down Larry Nassar. It’s an inside look at how a team of women — a detective, a prosecutor, and an army of survivors — won justice in one of the largest serial sexual abuse cases in U.S. history. It’s also an unnerving exploration of how even well-meaning adults can fail to believe.

Detour

Producer

For just shy of two years I worked as a producer and production manager at Detour, helping create highly sound-designed, immersive, location-based audio tours in San Francisco and New York City. Detours are “stories that take you places” — audio tours that reveal the stories of a neighborhood as you walk through the places where the history actually happened. They are sort of like time travel :)

  • Writing and editing scripts

  • Writing for the ear and writing for place

  • Auditioning and evaluating narrators

  • Interviewing story subjects

  • Recording environmental ambi

  • Multi-track editing of tour segments and audio promos

  • Sourcing, editing, and managing all visual and written assets for publication

  • Creating documentation and how-to manuals optimizing for efficiency

  • Managing contracts and releases

  • Liaising between independent producers and Detour HQ
