About

JLMHeadshot

I’m an audio/radio producer living in Philadelphia. In January of 2016, I joined the Original Content team at Audible.  Before that, I spent 7 years working for WHYY as a producer on the National Public Radio show “Fresh Air with Terry Gross.” I also take on occasional freelance work, mostly for museums, artists and galleries.

My love of music first drew me to radio. I got my start at WXPN, the University of Pennsylvania’s public radio station, which is recognized as a leader in the “Adult Album Alternative” radio format. At ‘XPN I worked on the Peabody Award winning show, “Kids Corner” hosted by Kathy O’Connell. Later, I became a producer for the “World Cafe with David Dye,” which is distributed by NPR.

My first freelance client was Philadelphia’s Eastern State Penitentiary, a historic prison that is now a museum. In 2002, Eastern State hired me to design the soundtrack for “Terror Behind the Walls,” their annual haunted house. We are still working together today. Over the years, I’ve worked with the staff at Eastern State to create and update dozens of pieces for “The Voices of Eastern State” audio tour. I’ve also grown my list of clients to include the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Association for Public Art, Slate Magazine, Technical.ly, the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance, and Philadelphia’s Mighty Writers.

I’ve taught radio production at the college level and, in the late 90’s, spent a couple of years schlepping around the country in a van while working as the stage manager for Huffamoose, a rock band signed to Interscope Records.
