Faculty: Carly Peruccio
I’m Carly (she/her), an audio producer based in Portland, Maine. My work has appeared on NPR and The Maine Monitor, and I'm currently making audio stories at Religion of Sports. As a member of The Anglerfish audio collective, my friends and I tell experimental stories in sound. I previously worked as a Teaching Assistant for the Radio & Podcasting track at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies, where I edited students’ stories and helped teach Pro Tools, interviewing, story structure, and producing. I studied audio storytelling at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies, and I graduated from Bates College with a degree in anthropology. As a Fulbright Fellow, I taught high school English in Luxembourg City. Beyond audio storytelling, I'm a library worker, trail runner, soccer fan, and piano player.
