Audio Academy Fellow

(he/him/his) I’m a second-generation Berkeley native. I feel lucky to have grown up in an area with a rich non-commercial and alternative radio scene.  As a kid I hid a transistor radio below my pillow, exploring across the dial, long after bedtime.  I got to work in radio production with KDVS at UC Davis while getting a degree in Wildlife Photography and Writing in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s.  Documentary film and television production was my main work after college. Volunteering with the Gay Men’s Health Collective of the Berkeley Free Clinic, deepened  my interest in science and health advocacy, and drew me into work and further studies in public health.  In addition to the Bay Area I have lived and worked in Washington, DC, Central America and Mexico.  I’m currently involved helping free clinics across California and I’m a medical student educator in several Western states.  I love hearing and sharing people’s stories and working to help make lives better.  I’m very happy to be learning and practicing journalism and audio production with KALW.

Sports teams in Santa Clara County were surprised to learn, this weekend, that their play and practices will be put on hold.

With cooler temperatures and winter snows, mountain resorts are beginning to open across California, and COVID-19 concerns are changing winter sports.
