I have a graduate journalism degree from Concordia University (Montreal) and a B.A. in History and Political Science from McMaster University.

In 2000, I established my own business in Vancouver as an independent journalist and researcher. In that time, I have worked on a wide variety of projects: freelance feature and news writing for daily papers and magazines, copy editing, and research/writing for non-profit organizations.

Today I am focused on writing news and feature stories about business, resource extraction and the environment; my published works are based on my own story ideas and independent investigations.

I have been awarded a 2013-14 Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada Media Fellowship, which will take me to Hong Kong, China and Japan to document the "life cycle" of British Columbia-mined copper.

Repurposing B.C.'s Ghost Town -- my story about the northern B.C. ghost town Kitsault -- is now a finalist for a 2013 Western Magazine Award.
