I’m a podcast strategist and I help storytellers create meaningful content. I love meeting and working with other creators & innovators.

In 2004, I started creating and leading development in podcasting. My expertise in creative audio strategies includes producing content for public, commercial and satellite radio, and in-flight entertainment.

Sound production leadership roles have included creating, launching & directing podcasting at Bloomberg News in 2006, and producing content at Sirius and Sony, as well as for Conde Nast and Time, and editing a multi-part Peabody Award-winning documentary about Leonard Bernstein.

I created the curriculum in storytelling and production for the world’s first, one-year podcast training & development program as co-director of Podcast Fellows at Stony Brook University, in Southampton and New York, NY.

Additionally, I’ve created and curated video for OTT and mobile apps. I have experience in video shooting and editing as well as in music mixing & curation.

Past professional affiliations include:

  • Adjunct Professor, Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism.
  • Vice President/Board of Directors, AIR/Association of Independents in Radio & Digital Media.
  • Advisory Committee Member, Workshop for Ethics in Business, Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs.
