Biography

Urban affairs reporter for the Edmonton Journal in Alberta, Canada. Occasionally tries to bike in the snow.

What was your first job as a journalist?

Summer staff (reporter, sometimes editor, flyer collater and sales clerk) at the Shaunavon Standard in small-town Saskatchewan.

How is social media changing news?

Social media allows me to have an ongoing discussion with people who live knee-deep in the many issues I cover everyday.

How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?

A quick email is great, or mention something when we met at an event and we can follow up later.
