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 work as Head of Production for Jam Street Media and client work on podcasts and sound design projects in the legal and entertainment fields.
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!).
