I'm a podcast strategist, editor, producer, and consultant.

 

I specialize in partnering with brands, publishers, non-profits, agencies, and production studios to develop podcasts and other highly-edited, sound-rich narrative audio content that resonates with listeners far more effectively than traditional advertising.

Every new project presents a unique challenge: craft memorable, emotionally compelling stories that capture audiences’ imaginations while achieving the brand's goals. I do my best, most creative work when trying to solve that puzzle. Because nobody wants to listen to a 30-minute commercial.

 
 

Recent Work at Gimlet Creative

As Gimlet Creative's first Deputy Creative Director, I helped grow Gimlet Media's in-house content studio from a team of three into 30+ producers, engineers, marketers, and sellers in two years. During that time, I personally oversaw and executed dozens of custom campaigns for Fortune 500 companies, including Apple and Ford.

I also contributed significant reporting, editing, and creative direction to several of Gimlet Creative’s most successful shows, which set the industry standard for what a branded podcast could be.

 
 

I touched all aspects of production, from start to finish, and led production teams in formulating show concepts, sourcing and pitching stories, casting hosts, producing and conducting interviews, cutting tape, writing scripts, directing tracking sessions, assembling rough episode mixes, and supervising musical scoring.
