FEATURED WORK

Only a few months after joining CBC News as a local reporter in Hamilton, I was one of the first journalists in the country to speak to a Canadian living with COVID-19. My stories have described despair and hope. I've also strived to add representation to our coverage and have a knack for photography.

At the National Post, I helped lead our country-wide chase of two suspected teen killers. I also encountered desperation, a wildlife crisis, scary neighbours and tinfoil hats. I also did work 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.

As a journalist in school, my work on the Bruce McArthur case won first place at the 2018 Better Newspaper Competition. I also reported spot news and local human interest stories.

BECOMING A JOURNALIST

I used to study neuroscience until our professor assigned us to write a news-style article about research — it was love at first write.

I switched to the University of Toronto’s joint-journalism program with Centennial College and I’ve been obsessed ever since.

Digital Journalism

A highlight includes one of the most-read stories in Toronto Observer history — a five-chapter interactive feature for the Bruce McArthur case.

Editing and Producing

I'm an editor at CBC News, and former editor at Postmedia and 680 News. I was also the managing editor for the East York Observer.

Social media and PR

I lead Instagram efforts at CBC Hamilton. I did the same at the National Post and was a key figure in 680's IG strategy. I also helped NP and plan the launch of its Tik Tok account. I've also done public relations for Centennial College.

MY SKILLS

My work is comprehensive, quick and correct. I bring enthusiasm to every assignment and love discovering new ways to tell a story.
