Video & Audio
I have been experimenting with producing short, low-budget video and film projects to help communicate my stories about science and environmental restoration. Bigger budgets and more experience would help smooth out the edges. There is no doubt, however, that it’s fun to try new things! Radio also enchants me with its storytelling – my next project, podcasts!

Morning Monitoring at Giant Marsh
Shadowing scientists and volunteers monitoring a human-made oyster reef surrounded by eelgrass beds.

50-Year Mystery of
San Francisco Bay
Exploring what four young women scientists do abroad the RH Peterson, a USGS research vessel.
Interviews and an overview of a complex restoration effort to build oyster reefs and plant eelgrass in the Bay, creating critical buffers for shorelines faced with sea level rise and flooding as well as habitat.
I’ve enjoyed experimenting with audio stories and interviews, but mainly as an editor and producer rather than as the interviewer or storyteller. On our Estuary News Group & KneeDeep Times soundcloud account, you can sample our Science in Short series, in which we tried to make scientists and their research more accessible and human, and other adventures in weaving audio into other stories.
RADIO INTERVIEWS 2012 & 2019
Jeff Schechtman interviewed me about our book Natural History of San Francisco Bay in 2012 and about the current challenges and resilience of the San Francisco Estuary in 2019 for the California Sun.
