I make stories with audio and writing, and help others make stories. These days, my main focus is podcasting.

I started my career in Bolivia; first as a fixer, translator, and producer, then as a South America correspondent for NPR, and later as a senior producer and editor for longform podcasts from Latino USA, Neon Hum, Radio Ambulante, VICE, and others. Now I work as an executive producer at VICE Audio. 

My podcasting skills range from consulting and coaching, developing shows, and building teams, to producing, writing, editing, and everything in between. As a human whose family and work is located across the Americas, I’m particularly interested in narratives that illuminate how our lives are shaped by race, borders, and late capitalism. 

A partial list of past clients includes: Adonde Media, The Atlantic, The California Sunday Magazine, Duolingo, Harper’s, IDEO, KUOW, LA Times, Latino USA, National Public Radio, Marketplace, The New Yorker, Pacific Standard, Radio Ambulante, Smithsonian, Spotify, Stitcher, This American Life, and VICE.

My work has earned awards and grants from the Arthur L. Carter Center at NYU, Blue Mountain Center, Bread Loaf, the Fulbright Program, the Fund for Investigative Journalism, the International Reporting Project, the Investigative Reporting Program at UC Berkeley, Middlebury College’s Environmental Reporting Fellowship, Monson Arts, and the Rona Jaffe Foundation. I’m ever grateful for this support.
