I am currently based in Edmonton, Alberta as a political reporter for the Postmedia national newspaper chain.

In 2015-16, I completed a media fellowship with Aga Khan Foundation Canada in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania where I wrote feature stories and covered the most recent presidential election.

Previously I worked in Regina, Toronto, Victoria and Kingston as a journalist. I have written hundreds of news articles that range from politics to crime to human interest stories. My work has appeared in major media outlets including the Globe and Mail, the Toronto Star and the National Post. I also have experience producing multimedia and video content.

I have a Master of Journalism from Carleton University where I was a two-time recipient of competitive travel awards to fund journalism development opportunities in Kigali, Rwanda and Harare, Zimbabwe. In Rwanda, I worked on a major journalism project about the growth of palliative care in the region and the lack of access to morphine.
