Since leaving the radio mothership D.C. and settling in the Shenandoah Valley, I’ve been mostly writing The News Leader, a newspaper in Staunton, VA. As the roving reporter, I’m given a lot of freedom to speak to people with interesting jobs, hobbies and stories.
On this blog, I plan to share my multimedia work, as well as individual audio, photo and writing samples.
“Kickball” is one of my first SoundSlides projects, produced to accompany a story package in the News Leader. The stories were about a smll own lacking a night life despite an abundance of young singles and transplants and a kickball team one transplant started to help people get together outside the bar.
