Audio Producer & Consultant
I'm obsessed with podcasts. I've been working in the podcast space for about four years and have held positions all over the industry. I've managed a podcast studio, consulted on projects for businesses and individuals, worked as an in-app curator, a marketing expert and consultant, speaker, and a community manager.
I founded EarBuds Podcast Collective in 2017. EarBuds is a weekly podcast recommendation engine that sends a newsletter with a theme and 5 podcast episodes on that theme, and each week is curated by a different person. Currently, I manage the community team at SquadCast, a remote recording software solution. I also produce short audio pieces on areas of life that interest me (and sometimes others).
Audio-Related Things I've Done
Outlier Podcast Festival
I emcee the thrice yearly Outlier Podcast Festival, which works to highlight independent podcasters throughout the U.S.
The Salt Institute for Documentary Studies
I attended the Salt Institute in Portland, ME in the fall of 2020 where I gained proficiency in Pro Tools and audio storytelling techniques.
I worked with podcast industry leaders to establish the Podcast Taxonomy system, which aims to systematize roles for audio and podcast production.
