I tell stories in my capacity as a reporter/photographer at the Steinbach Carillon, an award-winning weekly newspaper serving southeastern Manitoba. I have been recognized with national and provincial community newspaper honours for my work.

My byline has also appeared in the Winnipeg Free Press,...

What was your first job as a journalist?

I wrote the community news column for my hometown.

Who's your favorite fictional journalist?

Clark Kent! One local businessman calls me Clark whenever I walk into his place. Maybe the best compliment I could get.

What does it mean to be a journalist?

To decipher, to summarize and to confront.
