I launched my first podcast in early 2007 (Produce Picker Podcast) a video podcast about how to select and prepare fresh fruits and vegetables. The goal of the show was to learn how to podcast while at the same time share some of the tips and tricks I had learned while working in the produce industry.
In 2009, I created The Podcasters’ Studio to share what I had learned while producing the Produce Picker Podcast and to teach myself audio-only podcast production. Podcasting quickly became a full-time hobby and eventually my job.
One year earlier I was hired by a D.C. based non-profit to help produce their successful and quickly growing podcast network.
I can be found on twitter answering podcasting and video related questions while sharing resources and info related to audio video production that I find interesting. Feel free to look me up and ask a question. Or just say hi!
And while it takes most of my free time to be a content producer, these days it all takes a backseat to hanging out with my number one fan… my daughter.
But I’m raising my own production assistant so the content should only get better and more frequent in the coming years!;)
Oh yeah and there’s that one time I sat down at “the big table” and Leo said he knew who I was. It’s true, watch the video! #dreamin;)
