About …. 

I’m an audio engineer, sound designer and artist specializing in radio and podcast production. I’ve spent thousands of hours cleaning meditation audio, aiding journalists on news features, designing irreverent comedies, and soundscaping in-depth travel portraits and long-form documentaries. I also host workshops, teach the technical skills of audio production and support radio artists. More…


The Blind Tourist

The Blind Tourist, WFMU (2018-2021)

I’ve been making this show off and on since 2018 there are 90+ episodes available in the archive. Here are my favorites…

~ Interview with Melissa Pons. An hour of field recording, wolves and darkness.
~~ A Summer Dream Noir, a three hour special that travels through nightmares, dreams and 2011 Chicago. 
~~~ Talking to Jon Tjhia
~~~~ Postcards from Jason on a comfortable Odessy. Reccomended for a long drive.
~~~~~ Music and Sounds from the Woods, a special three hour journey
~~~~~~ Hell, it’s not as dark as it seems.
~~~~~~~ The Rings of Saturn (I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII). seven part radio interpretation of W.G Sebald’s book The Rings of Saturn. 

“… extremely sophisticated and listenable.”
‘The Blind Tourist’ Radio Program Does “The Rings of Saturn” on Vertigo 

“An interesting show […]  is Adriene’s Blind Tourist. This program was far more complex than any description we can muster.”
