Who We Are

Meet the Creator:

Shannon Geis

Shannon Geis lives in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn and wakes up every morning to the beautiful sounds of WNYC. She has been obsessed with radio and audio recording since she was growing up in the wild cornfields of rural Nebraska. She made her way to the big city to attend journalism school at NYU and fell in love with Brooklyn while hitting the pavement for The Brooklyn Paper in the summer of 2009. She recently finished a semester at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies and is currently pursuing an M.A. in Oral History at Columbia University. She hopes you like what you hear on The BK Buzz and that if you do, you make sure to tell her! To see more of her journalistic work, check out her clips page here and her PRX profile here. You can also check out the piece she wrote about the lives of an order of women religious living in New York City here, and her walking historical guide of the East and West Villages, called From the Lost Generation to the Punks.
