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 am an Editor at Progressive Digital Media and a freelance writer. My work has been published on Collapse Board, Media Diversified and The F Word. I edit my own blog about women in music called Don’t Dance Her Down Boys, I play in black feminist punk band, Big Joanie and I also DJ occasionally as part of the DJ team Bloody Ice Cream.
