I'm from Colorado and got my start in radio at WWOZ in New Orleans, freelanced for several years and worked as a staff reporter at Marketplace. I'm currently a reporter at KCRW where I host the podcast Welcome to LA which was named one of the ten best podcasts of 2018 by Vulture Magazine and story about an underground french fry maverick won a national Edward R. Murrow for best feature reporting in 2017. My print work has been published in The New York Times and I was once the subject of what is arguably the most reviled episode of Radiolab in the show's history. I live with my wife Katya and our daughter in Los Angeles.
