Writer and Audio Producer in Los Angeles, CA
I produce interviews and features for The Frame, a daily arts and culture radio show by NPR station KPCC. I’m drawn to stories about the intersections of gender, race, class, and ability in arts and culture.
My work has appeared in print, digital, and audio in various outlets, including BBC World Service, The Current (CBC), The Frame (KPCC), LAist, The California Sunday Magazine, Marfa Public Radio, Bitch, make/shift, and Huizache, and my name previously appeared on the mastheads of make/shift and the Los Angeles Review of Books.
In 2019, I was named an AIR New Voices Scholar and a finalist in KCRW’s 24-Hour Radio Race. I also completed the ACTIVATE Arts Advocacy Leadership Program as a cultural policy fellow and received scholarships to attend the PRNDI annual conference and the RTDNA Anchor and Producer Leadership Summit.
Prior to my career in media, I spent almost 15 years as a higher education administrator. I taught, counseled, and mentored students at UC Berkeley, UCLA, UC Riverside, and Cal State LA.
I received an MFA in creative nonfiction at the University of California, Riverside, and B.A. in German studies at Scripps College. I’m an alum of the Transom Traveling Workshop and the VONA Voices Workshop for writers of color.
