I'm an independent radio producer living in Washington, D.C. I am the host and producer of Midway, a show about midlife transitions. I recently completed the 9-week Transom Story Workshop in Woods Hole on Cape Cod. While working at this apprenticeship with public radio station WCAI, I produced stories on a fado singer and on the Lizzie Borden murders of Fall River. I worked previously for 11 years as the story development editor at National Geographic, where I oversaw environmental, geopolitical, and culture stories. I produced award-winning special issues and stories on sustainable food, water scarcity, conflict minerals, climate change, population issues, child brides, and threats to indigenous people. Before that, I was the editor-in-chief of Time Inc’s Health magazine in San Francisco for six years. I've written for National Geographic, the New York Times, Oprah, Discover, and Texas Monthly.
