I'm always excited to devote time and energy towards holding space. Working to build meaningful spaces for learning and growing -- spaces where people can feel comfortable being vulnerable and play to the strengths of that vulnerability -- is very important to me and I hope to do it more often. I am always open to more opportunities to facilitate/hold space (especially working with kids/youth).
In 2015 I co-organized a convening for community radio stations across California, called URCN, at UC Berkeley. There, I also moderated a panel, "Probing, Presenting, & Poise: the 3 P's of News and Public Affairs Programming," featuring Bill Drummond (professor, founding editor of Morning Edition) & Ashleyanne Krigbaum (KALW).
In 2015 & 2016, I facilitated numerous writing workshops and audio production workshops (i.e. "Writing for Radio," and "Pro Tools 101," through community radio station, KALX.
In 2018, I facilitated "Intro to Podcasting," a hands-on audio editing/mixing workshop at the Allied Media Conference in Detroit.
I am currently organizing Amplify, a community-driven storytelling conference for people of color. The inaugural event will take place September 2018. Learn more here.
I also facilitate weekly workshops/classes about sexuality, sex-positivity, and power and privilege through a course at UC Berkeley called FemSex.
