I’m primarily a radio/audio producer, although I’ve worked in web before, and probably the perfect person to produce the podcast you’ve been dreaming of. As the senior producer of Latino USA, I led a team of producers to the show’s first Peabody award in its over 20-year history.
I’ve been an editor for years at places like Guernica, Ricepaper and more recently Feet in 2 Worlds. I’m currently the managing editor of Ruins, a magazine about culture and the built environment. An essay I wrote was compiled in the book Canada’s Best Essays 2012. I also do stuff for Africa is a Country and soon, the Nation.
I write humor pieces for the New Yorker’s Shouts and Murmurs; personal essays; and essays on pop culture trends, digital lives (as they evolve with tech), music, and sports. I was the founding editor of AboveAverage.com, a comedy website in the Broadway Video family. I’m currently an associate producer at The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore and look forward to writing more pieces on a range of topics.
I work with a A Women’s Thing. We are a print quarterly + blog focused on reforming women’s media. We are actively interested in expanding the diversity of our writers, in terms of background, race, ethnicity, sexual identification, areas of interest, and more.
