I’m an award-winning reporter specializing in Indigenous issues, the cannabis “green rush,” information security, food safety, culture, and music. As a copy writer I specialize in speech writing, but I have also created content for a wide variety of blogs, websites, and other media.
Since 2011, I have regularly freelanced for the biweekly Nation magazine, serving the Cree Nation of Eeyou Istchee. In the winter of 2018, I began writing the Weed Week Canada newsletter, capturing the week in legal cannabis politics, business, and regulatory issues. My freelance reporting work has also appeared in the print and/or web editions of Think Progress, the Toronto Star, Salon.com, the Walrus, Leafly, Metro News (Canada), N+1, AskMen.com, University Affairs, SC Magazine (both Canada and US editions), Food Quality & Safety, the Huffington Post, Eeyou Eenou Magazine (produced by the Grand Council of the Crees, Eeyou Istchee), the Eastern Door (Kahnawake Mohawk Territory newsweekly), the Concordia University Journal, Concordia University Now, McGill University News, Mercedes Benz Magazine, Maximum Rockandroll, and World War 3 Illustrated.
In 2012, I published my first book of longform reporting, The Deadly Snakes: Real Rock and Roll Tonight, with Invisible Press. It was listed as one of the Top 10 Books of 2012 by Nightlife magazine, and as one of the Top 5 Books about the Toronto Music Scene by BlogTO.com.
