FEATURED WORK

I'm passionate about investigative reporting and hard-hitting, accountability journalism.

In Hamilton, I've covered years of fear, power struggles, expired PPE, long-lost siblings, bidding wars, rock bottom and hope. I've also strived to add representation to our coverage and am a skilled photographer.

At the National Post, I helped lead reporting of the country-wide chase of two suspected teen killers. I also encountered desperation, a wildlife crisis, scary neighbours and tinfoil hats. Near the end of my stint, I worked with The GrowthOp and Financial Post.

My freelance work has included national scoops and small local features across the Greater Toronto Area and beyond. I've also written about music from Australia, innovation in business and, oddly enough, unnatural nature.

In 2020, my breaking news coverage of a mobster's death won an RTDNA award. As a journalist in school, my work on the Bruce McArthur case won first place at the 2018 Better Newspaper Competition.

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.

Digital Journalism

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.

Social media

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.
