radio features

During my time as a volunteer and news intern at WRFI Community Radio in downtown Ithaca, I've both independently produced features and participated in collaborations with other Ithaca College students and local Ithaca media. I have contributed reporting, been an audio editor and mixer, as well as created features independently from start to finish.
