I'm a freelance journalist and editor based in Toronto. I write about how business, technology and politics affect local communities.

Before freelancing full time, I was an associate producer at VICE Canada where I helped to produce a brand new digital news and culture show called Daily VICE. Before that, I was the assistant editor and senior writer at Corporate Knights magazine, where I covered corporate social responsibility around the world. 

I have covered big debates shaping the natural resources industry for National Post, Reuters-affiliated Trust.org, and VICE Canada. As a Global Journalism Fellow at the Munk School of Global Affairs, I ran a major investigation into US oil companies' royalties, which appeared on Reuters.
