About

Radio producer, reporter, poet… recovering bohemian.

Currently, I produce and edit Live Wire, a weekly arts & culture show from PRI, broadcast on over 150 public radio stations and reaching over 300,000 listeners.

I’m also a freelance reporter for Marketplace, NPR, and The Guardian.

Previously, I’ve reported for the BBC World ServiceCBCDeutsche Welle, Monocle Radio (M24), Pacific Standard and the Toronto Star, among others.

I also worked in programming for a number of film festivals, including Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival and the Berlin International Film Festival, where I was the assistant to the head of programming at the Berlinale Talent Campus. I was also a project coordinator for the Institute of Documentary Film in Prague, Czech Republic, where I helped develop and promote documentaries by Eastern European filmmakers.

From 2011 to 2014, I produced Berlin Stories for NPR, a multimedia journal about the German capital broadcast on NPR Berlin (currently KCRW Berlin).

My poetry and short fiction has been published in several literary publications, including Poetry Quarterly, Verse Daily, Black Heart Magazine, apt, The Fourth River, BlazeVOX, Reunion: The Dallas Review (formerly Sojourn), and more.

My poetry chapbook, We Slept in Body Bags, Just in Case, was published in 2013 by Finishing Line Press and was nominated for a Mass Book Award.

I’m also a distant relative of Ukrainian poet, writer, and artist Taras Shevchenko… at least it feels right to assume.

In 2014, I left beloved Berlin to chase stories in Portland, Oregon, where I currently reside.
