Her site-specific sound installations and live performances have been featured at NAISA’s Deep Wireless Festival and Radio Without Boundaries conference. You can also hear her at the Third Coast International Audio Festival.
Mieke started at CBC News in 2010 covering breaking stories in Toronto's national newsroom. By 2013 she was chase producing for shows across the network, eventually hosting her own national specials. She's now a go-to producer for innovative and creative storytelling, including working to reimagine the CBC's top investigative program The Fifth Estate as a podcast series.
Despite quitting baseball at age 13, Mieke's made it up to her dad by working on four Olympics and interviewing 300+ athletes for CBC Sports (including NHLer Sidney Crosby). She's also danced flamenco and taught violin to kids.
Born above an army surplus store in Toronto's east-end, Mieke was raised in Parkdale and half-educated en español in Progreso, Yucatán (she's still hoping to find Mexican blood in her lineage).
