I'm a freelance radio journalist & podcast producer passionate about telling stories related to race, class, and identity.

I'm also looking for my next gig! Are you hiring for a bilingual full-time radio reporter/producer? I've hosted Morning Edition locally, Produced for NPR programs, and reported on the environment, health, and culture for various media outlets. And I'm ready to take these skills into a reporter/producer position for a podcast, radio program, or something new!

When I'm not telling stories, I'm hitting the gym or spending quality time with my friends.   

I live in Detroit, MI. But home is always Jakarta, Indonesia.

You can email me at npbrao [at] Gmail [dot] com (npbrao@gmail.com).

I'm also on Twitter @npbrao_.
