Interview

What was your first job as a journalist?

I was the founding editor of Blue Dog Press, the online publication for Langley Fine Arts School.

What story are you most proud of writing or working on?

I am most proud of "Cold Awakenings," my article on white nose syndrome in Nova Scotia's bats.

Aside from your own, what's your favorite publication to read?

I have always loved National Geographic. Their articles are fantastic -- that magazine is why I got into journalism in the first place.
