Program development and production
My first love and longtime work has been listening — to artists, to scientists, to the world around me, observing and asking questions and sharing what I learn through radio programs and podcasts. I have created award-winning programming for PRI, WNYC, NPR, and PRX. You can listen to some of my recent work here. Contact me through this form if you would like me to develop an audio project for you.
If you have the good fortune to spend time with ceramic artists in their 8th and 9th decades, you quickly venture into deep conversations on subjects we all ponder – about wisdom, loss, the passion to create, and where we find meaning.
Watershed Legends Wayne Higby, Jack Troy, and Paula Winokur welcomed us into their studios and homes for our new podcast series, which I had the great pleasure to host and produce.

In a few minutes of converstaion, leadership coach Dick Nodell and Julie Burstein illuminate a Work Mystery, offering good-humored guidance and thought-provoking wisdom about the challenges of negotiating the workplace.
Public Radio Stories
In choreographer Jody Oberfelder's 4Chambers, we're pulled into the power of the heart by dancers who let us feel their heartbeats -- and make us aware of our own. In my story for Studio 360, dancer Mercedes Searer offers a visceral experience of being in the piece -- and shows us it's possible to dance on the radio!
An unexpected gift
A story I produced for Studio 360 for Fathers' Day, about a corporate lawyer named Ed Zimmerman and his dad, Samuel Zimmerman, who had unrealized dreams of being a writer and a singer, and whose passion for words and music had a profound impact on his son.
From vo-tech in VT to Hollywood and Broadway
Throughout the entertainment industry, alumni of a tiny vocational high school program are at work: building sets in Hollywood, mixing sound on Broadway, performing on TV shows like The Office. They're graduates of the Addison Repertory Theater, (A.R.T.), an incubator for actors and theater technicians at the Hannaford Career Center in Middlebury VT. I produced this story for NPR.
