About Wendy

My work in San Francisco’s public schools and afterschool programs explores the role that personal narrative, storytelling, and digital media can play in education, community arts, and social change. I’m certified as a facilitator by the Center for Digital Storytelling in Berkeley, CA. I’m also a public radio producer. My work has been broadcast on NPR, KALW, KPFA, and BMIR.

I serve as Co-Chair of the Zine Committee at Rock Paper Scissors Collective, a volunteer-run organization that fosters creativity and collaboration.  My favorite activities include riding my bike around the city, eating at my favorite taqueria (El Toro), and sleeping outdoors in nature.

About Noodle Mania

Noodle Mania is a collaborative zine-making audio experience that combines my love for audio production, documentary, drawing, hosting parties and cooking. This project has a mission: to create a forum in print, online, and in person for people to share true stories about their lives and to practice self-expression. I especially invite people who do not consider themselves “artists” to participate — doodlers, creative dabblers, storytelling freaks, and adventurous souls with expressive impulses. I’m trying to foster community. I want to bring together people who are looking for a hands-on experience, collaboration, and a new way to engage. I want to provide them with a creative challenge, some encouragement, and a warm bowl of noodles.
