I'm a 35-year-old journalist from Peterborough with a passion for public broadcasting, food and municipal policy.
I graduated with a degree in Canadian Studies from Trent University in 2010. Immediately after, I started at CBC Radio in Toronto as a Gzowski Intern - and continued to moonlight there as an associate producer while completing a master's degree in urban planning from the University of Waterloo.
In 2012, I moved to the border city of Windsor, where I worked as an associate producer and studio technician/director for CBC's Windsor Morning.
My first book, The Best of Windsor Cookbook, was released by Biblioasis in 2016. It features more than 90 recipes from the region's best chefs and farmers, based on some of the stories from my long-running CBC local food column.
I became the Windsor-based reporter-editor for Afternoon Drive, CBC Radio's regional afternoon show for southwestern Ontario in 2017.
In 2020, I moved to Sudbury to become the host of Up North, CBC's regional afternoon show for northern Ontario.
