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.

Where I’m From

  1. We are so thankful to know more about your dad’s background. What his life was like growing up in the Middle East. I asked Glenn’s internal medicine doctor to find him a doctor in Multiple Myeloma field that was the best of the best. I sat and prayed for the best doctor for my husband. Thirty minutes later he called me back and said that he had found the “guru of Multiple Myeloma”. I said “that will work”. And it has worked; Glenn has been in remission for eight years. We have been so fortunate to have had your dad as our doctor. Rabi, this was a very interesting audio of your dad’s life. Thank you for letting us know your dad, and you better.
