I'm an independent radio producer based in NYC.

I worked as an associate producer on Gimlet Media's Crimetown – a podcast about politics and organized crime in Providence, Rhode Island. The podcast was featured as a best new podcast of 2016 by the New York Times, reviewed by the Boston Globe, and called "the corruption podcast America needs right now" by VICE

Prior to Gimlet, I helped produce The United States of Debt at Slate, and Radiotopia's Millennial

I'm a member of the Association of Independents in RadioAsian American Journalists Association, and International Association of Women in Radio & Television

In 2016, I received the John D. Bryant award for Creative Production. 

I graduated from Dartmouth College with high honors in English, and my senior thesis, titled "Intimate Publics: Hearing Race in Radio and Podcasts," analyzed the intersection of race and journalistic authority within radio and podcasts.
