I am a national award winning audio journalist currently producer for AirSpace from the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.
I teach audio journalism with the University of Notre Dame's program in Journalism, Ethics and Democracy.
My Bachelor's degree is in broadcast journalism from Central Michigan University.
I also work on a freelance basis producing and reporting audio stories. As well as working tapesyncs in the DC Metro area.
I have a passion for audio. I am drawn to the kind of stories that are driven by character. A person, or people, to whom the news is not coming out of a car radio but happening inside their home, on their street or in their neighborhood.
I hope to put my passion to work for your organization.
