Hi friend. I'm a Detroit-based story maker. With my wife, I created and host the podcast, Pregnant Pause with Zak and Shira, which chronicles our decision to bring a child into this strange world of ours. I'm currently the Director of Podcasts at Graham Media Group and the producer/editor of How to Survive the End of the World.

My radio features have been heard on NPR, CBC, BBC, PRI, APM, Deutsche Welle and Radio Helsinki. I was a staff producer on NPR/PRX's State of the Re:Union and prior to that, I was a co-founding producer of WDET's Detroit Today.

I facilitate workshops and consult with museums, high schools, universities, and community organizations on various story-based projects. Iā€™m also a counselor at Radio Campfire. I'd love to work with you. If you've got something in mind, lemme know

As a younger man, I worked as a paleontologist.
