I Help Bring Projects to Life
And I start by listening to you. What do you need?
I partner with you. From research to the setup to the ongoing coordination of a project, my role depends on your needs. With some clients, I focus solely on post-production elements and the creation of content that meets their media goals. In other scenarios, I am involved more intimately with a client's entire project, as a partner, running various aspects of a project as it demands.
I have been working in the podcast industry since 2017 and the broader audio industry for nearly my entire life in one capacity or another. In that time I have produced podcasts and videos in the education, business, travel, entertainment, legal, and technology industries.
Currently, my time is split between client work and sound design for Retold Myths & Tales, an immersive storytelling podcast.
MY TOOL BOX
Starting a podcast is something to be excited and thoughtful about. It requires planning and being clear on your goals and your metrics for assessing those goals. I help my clients build a strong foundation for their shows so they can serve the people they seek to serve in a way that is sustainable. There's a lot to learn before you hit record, but I promise it's worth it!
AUDIO EDITING & ENGINEERING
Running a successful podcast isn't as easy as hitting record and being done. Audio is a craft and hitting record is a small (important) part of the equation to a well-produced show.
The number one issue I've seen is: you're excited about your podcast, launch it, and then realize between recording, chasing after guests, editing, and not knowing the audio engineering to make it sound how you want...this thing is a full-time job.
As a podcast editor, I handle the post-production so you can focus on your business, your kids, and networking new guests (or writing if you're a solocaster--yes you can do it alone!).
Recording, editing, and uploading...oh my. What's the back-end? it's all the steps required to get your podcast ready to record and out into the world. It's important to get right from the start and I help my clients navigate this terrain and find the technology solutions that are best for them.
My work allows me to work with and collaborate on teams in a variety of fields. Often this involves working with executives and their employees from different departments and levels of an organization, with the goal of creating a unified podcast for the company.
Learning new technologies has become a pastimefor me at this point. Below are the tools I use regularly, but this is in no way an exhaustive list of the technology I use(that list seems to grow every day!).
