I began my podcasting journey in 2016. A friend and I tried to launch a podcast and I couldn't believe how much went into creating a show...crazy right?!? For the last 4 years, I've jumped headfirst in podcasting and have made it my passion and livelihood. Since opening StudioPod in 2018 I've helped companies, writers, professional athletes, doctors, and many others produce their podcasts.
