I work at the Front Desk as the technical advisor for both producers and staff. I am also the point person for special equipment and space reservation requests, unique partnership and artist-in-residence needs, and hands-on production support for Open Signal events.

Originally from Massachusetts, I have worked in community media for over a decade at multiple television stations starting in 2007. My background includes studio and field production, editing, programming, teaching workshops, stop-motion animation, and filmmaking. I also serve as the Secretary on the Alliance For Community Media Northwest Region Board of Directors!
