Independent Producer

"I’m an independent radio producer and freelance reporter based in sunny Los Angeles, CA. I love the quirky, the complex, and the painfully human, and I hold a special place in my heart for community health and arts & culture journalism. Currently, I’m blogging about the Affordable Care Act for Reporting on Health, and I’m also working on an investigative piece as a UC Berkeley 11th Hour Food and Farming Fellow. In my spare time, I’m producing an audiovisual profile series about one of the best and least known groups of people in Los Angeles: the Chinese chefs of the San Gabriel Valley."
