I'm a writer and documentary producer based in Brooklyn. Most recently, I produced “Back Pass,” an audio documentary for ESPN’s 30 for 30 Podcasts on the rise and fall of the first women’s professional soccer league. With the FRONTLINE series on PBS, I helped to produce several Emmy-award winning documentaries, including Gunned Down: Inside the Power of the NRA and The Choice 2016. For a full list of films I worked on, click here.

My writing has appeared in The Ringer, The Guardian, the New Republic and elsewhere. In 2018, I co-authored a deep dive investigation into why the U.S. men’s national team missed the World Cup for The Ringer. For a full list of written clips, click here.

Before working as a journalist, I taught history and coached soccer in rural northeastern North Carolina. I can be reached at andrew(.)helms at gmail(.)com. I'm also on Twitter and Instagram.
