Available For : Acting, Arts reporting, Commentary/editorials, Consulting, Documentary production, Environmental Reporting, Field Recording, Interviewing, Mentoring, Music recording, News Reporting, Post production, Sound Editing and Mixing, Multimedia, Print Reporting, Public Radio, Voiceover, Program development, 

Equipement/Studio : DAT Recorders, 

Media Experience : Audio Art, Commercial Radio, Community Radio, Radio Documentary, Print Media, Multimedia production, Social media strategy, 

Bio : In 2006, some local activist friends started a radio station that was an unusual combination of community & commercial radio. For one year, I independently fully produced my own pre-recorded one-hour-long monthly news magazine show that included interviews of local activists, artists, and commentary. When the radio station ended, I continued with shorter pieces.

Born in Buffalo, NY, where it\'s become quite clear that we no longer have \"weather\", we have Climate, trumping all local systems. As a child, I was the kid who asked questions about family history. Later, I was the one who asked my family, myself, & sought answers in the world, for connections between personal history, and the world\'s events.

I went to college for art, and left because the programs within which I could afford to study were not addressing these realities, and I couldn\'t afford to spend the income on not studying how to apply my gifts in a world whose story reflected a growing loss of touch with reality.

I evolved to do this via activism, with the understanding that my aim is to stand in the intersection of expressing stories as a part of the collective process we need to unite struggles in communities & shape a culture that works for all inhabitants of the planet. I believe we need to understand what\'s being done to the world, and what we can do about it, because stories are part of the map humans use for how to survive.

Photography was my first love as a child, but I studied painting & writing in college, and over the years, I\'ve come to develop skills in audio art, interviewing and radio production & re-ignited my love for (natural world) photography.

Notes : As a visual, audio, and textual artist, my intention is to share stories that remind us how to live as human beings in relation to all inhabitants of the finite, ailing planet, in these hard times, in preparation for the collective work of shaping a sane & sustainable culture. I\'m currently working on an audio series of interviews of people thinking about and actively addressing that-One direction of several oral history projects I\'m onto. [NOTE: Also working on a new website.] I use Peak editing suite, use a Marantz 670 professional recorder, and have a small handheld Sony IC Recorder. I am literate in both Mac & PC.

Brett Ascarelli

Hägersten , Stockholm,  126 39

Available For : Public Radio, 

Media Experience : International Reporting, Radio Documentary, 

Jenny Attiyeh

Boston , Massachusetts,  02114


Available For : Commentary/editorials, Environmental Reporting, Interviewing, Multimedia, Print Reporting, Public Radio, Voiceover, 

Media Experience : International Reporting, Radio Documentary, Television, Print Media, On-air talent, Podcasting, 

Bio : Hi there! I am Jenny Attiyeh, and I began my career in 1987 in London as a freelance reporter on the arts for the BBC World Service Radio. Specifically, I did stories for two of their programs: Meridian, and Arts and Africa.

After my work permit ran out, I returned to Los Angeles, my home city, and continued as an arts reporter for KCRW. While there, I reported and produced an award-winning documentary on Japanese-American internment during World War II. Shortly after, I was accepted to a National Public Radio residency, which brought me to Washington and to WBUR in Boston to report stories for NPR’s Performance Today.

I later attended the Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University. After that, I remained in New York City for 9 years, during which time I worked primarily as a reporter on public television and radio. I hosted and produced a weekly arts and culture segment for WNYC TV, a PBS station, until it went out of business (thanks to then Mayor Giuliani, who sold the station). Before the lights went out, I managed to produce a mini-documentary on the making of a Philip Glass opera, based on “Les Enfants Terribles” by Jean Cocteau.

I worked next as a correspondent for a nationally televised PBS program called “Freedom Speaks,” which focused on the media until it, too, was taken off the air. (I detect a pattern here…) In between gigs, I worked as a freelance reporter for WBAI and WNYC radio, covering local politics and the arts.

I then moved to Maine, where I lived by the harbor in Kittery, and worked as a reporter for New Hampshire Public Television. There, I covered the New Hampshire presidential primary season, and interviewed the major presidential candidates. I also participated as a panelist in nationally televised presidential debates, hosted by Peter Jennings and Tim Russert.

Following the conclusion of the New Hampshire primary season, I moved to Boston, where I initially did freelance writing on academia, the 2004 presidential campaign and the single life, among other subjects. From this base, I launched ThoughtCast.

Notes : ThoughtCast (www.thoughtcast.org) is a podcast and public radio interview program with authors, academics and intellectuals. Its purpose is to serve as a bridge between the publications and pursuits of the intellectual world and a curious, informed, mainstream audience.

By providing detailed, unhurried and personal conversation with current writers and thinkers, ThoughtCast aims to be both engaging and informative -- a hybrid that is (in my view) shockingly absent from most of American media today -- but happily NOT from AIR members!

He has worked for Larry Josephson as an engineer since 2002, doing mixing, transfers, Pro Tools editing, live radio (ISDN, etc.) and, of course, tape synchs, for which he has the experience and equipment to do really well.

Clients that Robert Auld has worked for include the BBC, NPR, WFMT, Columbia University, The Manhattan School of Music, The NY Public Library at Lincoln Center, The Estate of Arturo Toscanini and many others too numerous to mention.

Robert Auld has been Chairman of the New York Section of the Audio Engineering Society and a presenter on historical audio subjects at several conventions of the AES. He has written equipment reviews and articles on audio subjects for Recording Magazine.

Notes : Members of AIR who have special media transfer requirements (old or unusual tape formats, most kinds of analog disks, etc.) will find me a good resource. I can transfer a great deal of what is out there, and if I cannot do it, I usually know who can.

I am also a very experienced remote recording engineer, in voice and music recording of all types.
