Who, Me?

I’ve been writing about business, culture and lifestyle for the Wall Street Journal, Chicago Tribune and seemingly any magazine with “fitness” in the title. I once even wrote a quiz for Seventeen magazine but am now reporting on how small companies are using social media and technology. I’ve actually been a regular WSJ contributor since the mid 2000’s. I started writing for several career columns and also did entertainment writing and video production for the Speakeasy entertainment blog.

I got my start in journalism producing stories for public radio. I’ve always been drawn to niche ideas such as one Marketplace story I produced about the resurgent popularity of natural materials for consumer products over plastic. I’ve also fully produced arts and culture stories for WNYC’s Studio 360 and for two BBC World Service programs including Culture Shock and Digital Planet.

What I can do:

  • Full audio production
  • Tape syncs
  • Podcast production
  • Livestream audio and video

I’ve been an editorial illustrator for as long as I’ve been a writer. My award-winning collage style has been commissioned for New Republic covers and has been double trucked across broadsheets for the Washington Post and the Chicago Tribune. I’ve also produced infographics and animated explainers for Playboy.com and other clients.

What I can do:

  • Infographics
  • Animated explainers
  • Editorial illustration
  • Broadcast motion graphics

I currently produce and shoot for KCET’s SoCal Connected, a newsmagazine show that covers issues affecting Southern Californians. I’ve produced some of my own segments as well as assisted other producers with camera work, sound, editing, drone work and motion graphics. Over the past three seasons, I’ve won or been part of a team that has won Los Angeles-area Emmys, Golden Mikes, Walter Cronkite awards and Los Angeles Press Club awards.

What I can do:

  • Cinema camera operation (Canon C100/C200/C300, Sony FS5/FS7)
  • Field recording/sound mixing/audio repair
  • Editing and color grading
  • Drone operation
  • Motion graphics creation
  • Behind the scenes production
