Audio Stories

Over the past few years, I've worked on podcasts, documentaries and news pieces.


NYT's Caliphate

In the war on terror, who is it that we're really fighting? Caliphate follows Rukmini Callimachi, who covers terrorism for The New York Times, on her quest to understand ISIS. I helped produce, research and fact-check the series. We were honored to win a Peabody Award, the Overseas Press Club’s Lowell Thomas Award, and the inaugural best audio documentary award from the International Documentary Association.


Gimlet Media's The Pitch

I produced the second season of The Pitch, a show where entrepreneurs pitch their startups to investors. I identified and reported diverse stories for the third season and coordinated and produced the first recording session for the podcast with Gimlet Media.

Coming to America and Coming of Age

In this digital magazine and audio piece for The Wilson Quarterly, I delve into the recent surge of young immigrants to the U.S. What happens to a teen from Honduras as he waits for over a year to receive immigration papers?


WNYC Crash Course series

On October 19, 1987, the Dow Jones had its biggest one-day drop in Wall Street history. On the 30th anniversary of the crash, I produced this series which looked at the causes of "Black Monday" and what it reveals about the fissures that still plague our financial system.

FiveThirtyEight documentaries

In 2016, I co-produced two of the politics podcast's audio documentaries re-examining seemingly make-or-break moments of elections past. The first was on the infamous Dean Scream. Next, we covered the first time Barack Obama publicly grappled with race relations.


On Assignment

I launched and produced the first season of On Assignment, an interview-based podcast from the duPont-Columbia Awards and Columbia Journalism School. These conversations included the producers of Serial, Alex Gibney, Alissa Rubin, and Joshua Oppenheimer.
