Freelance Web and Podcast Producer


I've been a freelance podcast and web producer for nearly a decade. You can find an online portpholio of my work in audio production below.


The 'Spare Minute' Podcast, Ep. 27: December 19, 2016


World Policy On Air, Ep. 42: Terror and the Migrant Crisis, November 20, 2015


The Third Eye Weekly Podcast, Episode 90:  Malcolm Gladwell, November 7, 2013

In the twilight of President Obama's final term, Bloomberg View’s Eli Lake joined our podcast to argue that the administration should release any information on Vladimir Putin’s financial assets in the West in retaliation for Russian interference in the 2016 elections. Listen here.

A week before the terror attacks at the Bataclan club in Paris in November 2015, our host David Alpern (formerly of Newsweek On Air) interviewed World Policy Institute fellow and Wall Street Journal contributor Damaso Reyes about the state of migrant policy in Europe. Listen here.

Despite some technical difficulties with the phone line that required drastic audio editing in post-production, my conversation with Malcolm Gladwell following the release of his 2014 book 'David and Goliath' is probably the interview highlight of my career thus far. Listen here.
