Eli is the Program Director for KALW's project in state prisons. We teach incarcerated people how to record and edit audio stories, and air them as part of the series Uncuffed.

Eli graduated from KALW's Audio Academy in 2016. He became KALW's transportation reporter, and also interned with KQED News and The California Report. He's been working in KALW's training programs in prison since 2018.

Eli lived in the East Bay between the ages of seven and 29, and is now based in Los Angeles. He's a musician, a bicyclist, and an active member of the Jewish community.
