ANNIE AVILÉS

I make stories and help people turn stories into podcasts. 

I started my career in Bolivia; first as an interpreter and “fixer”, then as a South America correspondent for NPR while also writing 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.  Now I work as executive editor at VICE Audio. In audio, my focus is story editing, show development, and creative direction. I’m bilingual in English and Spanish and enjoy working in both languages.

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.
