HELLO

My name is Tressa Versteeg. I am an independent audio producer and writer.

I proudly hail from the midwest and bop from timezone to timezone. Right now, I am on and island in Maine.

I am a graduate of Macalester College and the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies.

NOW

An unlikely story about a far-traveling balloon.

A personal series about memory, age and heartbreak.

Exploring global feminism through women’s soccer. You can listen to interviews at the Women’s World Cup in France on World Cup: Fans Speak.

I have produced work for NPR’s Only A Game, Lenny Says, WHYY The Pulse, Wisconsin Public Radio, Wyoming Public Media, The HumaNature Podcast and the out•land•dish Podcast.

Previous lives

I hand-rolled thousands of croissants and taught kids how to divide fractions, wield words and think about their place in the world.

I wrote the children’s book El Hermano, La Hermana, a La Vaca: a trilingual children's story written in collaboration with elementary students in the Andes of Bolivia.

Sometimes I live on my bicycle. One time, I went around the Great Lakes with the Solidago Riders. We made videos about community-based change.
