I spent two-and-a-half years as a Vancouver-based journalist after graduating from the Master of Journalism program at the University of British Columbia. The majority of my time was split between three publicationsThe Richmond News, as a reporter and copy editor; Megaphone, as assistant editor and reporter; and OpenFile (website is currently on hiatus), as contributing editor and reporter. I was also an alternating host on Vancouver Co-op Radio's The Storytelling Show. Below is a selection of my work. Visit their websites for more articles.
