TELLING STORIES THAT MATTER
I'm a CBC News reporter with a passion for investigative journalism
I'm passionate about hard-hitting, agenda-setting, investigative reporting that holds people and institutions accountable.
I regularly file freedom-of-information (FOI) requests, access to information (ATIP) requests and use open-source intelligence to uncover stories no one else has.
Last year, I won gold at the Digital Publishing Awards for The Long Wait — a short feature on immigrant families in Canada who found strength amid long waits to reunite during the pandemic.
I also won first place Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) award for a breaking news story about a deadly kidnapping in Hamilton.
The year prior, in 2021, I won another RTDNA for a breaking news story about the death of a notorious mobster.
BECOMING A JOURNALIST
I used to study neuroscience until a professor assigned us to write a news-style article about research — it was love at first write.
I switched to the University of Toronto and Centennial College joint-journalism program and I’ve been obsessed ever since.
A highlight includes Schools Under Stress — a three-part exclusive series examining the pandemic's impact on educators and students.
Editing and Producing
I'm an editor at CBC News and former editor at Postmedia. At 680 News, I assigned stories, produced lineups, edited stories and reported them.
I was selected to join CBC's Social Media Committee. I've grown Instagram accounts at CBC and Postmedia by more than 10,000 followers each and experiment with other social platforms.
A good story becomes a great story when you treat it right. These are some of the storytelling tools I know how to use.
