I’m an award-winning, Toronto-based environmental journalist and the editor-in-chief of Alternatives Journal, Canada’s oldest environmental publication.
Before A\J, I was an energy and resource reporter with Queen’s Park Briefing, part of the Toronto Star Media Group, and a political reporter with Queen’s Park Today. I have also worked as the columns editor at This Magazine and was their environmental columnist from 2015-2017. When called upon, I’m also a contributing editor at the Missouri-based journal The New Territory.
I have a Masters degree in human geography from the University of Toronto and a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Nonfiction from the University of King’s College in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
My work has been published in print in the Globe and Mail, Corporate Knights, Toronto Life, This Magazine, Spacing, Azure, Ontario Nature, Alternatives Journal, The New Territory and CIM Magazine. My writing has also been featured online in TVO.org, The Grid TO, OpenFile Toronto, Dandyhorse and Alternative Journal’s community blog since 2012.
In 2014, I won the Carl Nunn Media and Conservation Award from environmental non-profit Ontario Nature for my coverage of the Ontario government’s summer-2013 gutting of the Endangered Species Act.
I joined the Board of Directors at Ontario Nature in May 2015.
