ANNIE AVILÉS

I make stories and help people turn stories into podcasts. 

I started my career in South America; first as an interpreter, then as an audio producer and writer of reported essays about race, class, and land justice. After moving to the US, I started working as an editor and EP for longform podcasts from Radio Ambulante, Spotify, Stitcher, VICE, and others. I now work as executive editor at VICE Audio and volunteer as a sounding board for folks from backgrounds underrepresented in podcasting. In the audio space,  my focus is story editing, show development, and creative direction. 

My work has earned a Murrow award, a Rona Jaffe fellowship, a Fulbright, and more. I value equity, imagination, and generosity of spirit, and try to bring that to everything I do.
