I make radio stories. And sometimes I make videos, too. Sometimes I teach. And sometimes I write. I'm a born Mainer and now live in Portland.
Before I produced stories, I spent days on end making tiny stitches on paper with thread. Someday I'll combine audio and fiber arts... When, in the future, we can stitch with sound waves.
Current projects include Working Waterfront Stories, a new storytelling project for the Waterfront Alliance in Portland, and video production for Maine Sustainable Agricultural Society. I have produced audio stories for NPR, BBC World Service, and The Heart. My local work focuses primarily on environmental stories, and land and sea-based working stories.

I am a proud graduate of the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies.
