The sound of great journalism ...

Podcasting is more popular than ever with so many content options you might not ever have to turn on your TV again. It offers a different kind of engagement than watching a show or reading, and a good conversation can really inspire you. I think this is what podcasting does best, draws you in and lets you hear the underlying passion for the topic of the interviewer and interviewee. For Space Makers, we select industry leaders and learn what makes them tick and why they love to do what they do. My years of journalism experience combined with my intimate knowledge of audio production give me a unique ability to produce high-quality and informative podcasts — I truly love being able to draw on these two different skills and watch them intertwine.

When it comes to making music, I’ve done everything from co-writing a hit song for the Counting Crows to playing guitar and bass and writing songs for many of my own groups. My wife, Yuri, and I have a band that released its second album, Pioneer, in 2019. Check it out here.
