Hello! I’m the Hamilton-Niagara bureau reporter for TVO.org. I write about current affairs in the region and occasionally appear on The Agenda With Steve Paikin. I also co-host Radio Free Krypton, a radio show/podcast about comics and the people who make them on CJRU 1280 AM in Toronto.

Before joining TVO in May 2020, I worked at CBC in Toronto. I report on everything from municipal boundaries to colliding black holes. My passions are books and dogs.

work history

I report on the Hamilton-Niagara region for TVO.org’s Ontario Hubs team.

From March 2018 to May 2020, I worked at CBC in Toronto. I worked as a reporter and/or producer for Cross Country Checkup, Day 6, The Current, As It Happens, CBC Music, CBC Arts and CBC’s Sirius XM department.

Since July 2016, I've co-hosted and produced Radio Free Krypton, a weekly comic book radio show and podcast on CJRU 1280 AM. I manage the show and it's social media.

I graduated from the Ryerson School of Journalism in June 2018.

In Winter 2018, I worked as a news editor at The Eyeopener, Ryerson University's independent student newspaper. I was a producer on the Eyeopener podcast’s inaugural season. 

In Fall 2017, I completed a six-week internship at CBC radio show Day 6.

As part of my fourth year in Ryerson's journalism program, I worked at The Ryersonian as an audio producer. I was also a deputy newsroom manager.

I was the business and technology editor at The Eyeopener between May 2016 and May 2017. I've got bylines in the paper's news, biz & tech, features, arts and fun sections going back to September 2014. 

 I taught swimming and first aid for seven years.
