I was raised on public radio. Growing up, Garrison Keillor might as well have been my grandfather. Throughout my childhood, the sounds of National Public Radio could be heard from radios throughout my house at all hours. While my focus today is on visual and written storytelling, radio will always have a dear place in my heart. I have worked for several student, community, and NPR-affiliate radio stations as reporter, producer, and photographer.
This first piece is a feature I produced about my father for American Student Radio. It tells the story of his life as a Palestinian refugee born in Damascus, Syria, who moved to America to find a new life.
This next piece is an example of work I have done as a segment producer. I did not record this interview, but edited it down into a coherent story.
