I'm one of eight children. My first name is pronounced (care-oh-lean-uh), but if you call me (care-oh-line-ah) I won't be offended.

I graduated from the University of Missouri with a bachelor's in broadcast journalism and a minor in film studies. My work has appeared on the Associated Press, Studio 360, This American Life and BBC Americana.

Before coming to the Advocate I worked for Minnesota Public Radio and Culturemap Houston.
