Davey (he/him) is the senior podcast producer for Youth Radio -- a Peabody award-winning nonprofit media company and learning institute in Oakland, CA.
Prior to Youth Radio, his stories and musical scores have aired on WNYC's Snap Judgment (400+ NPR member stations across two million listeners weekly). Many of his pieces have been recognized as exceptional, including #3 on Thrillist’s “Best Podcast Episodes of 2016”, #13 on The Atlantic’s “Best Podcasts of 2016” and #36 in 2015. He has also contributed to NPR's Weekend Edition, All Things Considered, Marketplace, The Dinner Party Download, KCRW's Unfictional, PRI's The World and KPCC's Take Two. He has also taught at several non-profits and schools -- Oakland School for the Arts, San Quentin's Ear Hustle and Writing Pad. Several of his students and clients have aired their stories on NPR and The Moth.
His side hustles include competitive bike polo (last place in 2016 North American Championships), woodworking and mastering his housemate's instant pot. He does not let his lactose intolerance stop him from eating string cheese. He has also made a guest appearance on a comedic web series (The North Pole) and had a hard time pronouncing 'dothraki' on-set (no, he does not watch Game of Thrones).
