Hi, I'm a freelance journalist based in Ontario, Canada.
I've also: flipped hamburgers, mowed lawns, sold computers, refereed, turned wrenches, worked as a rent-a-cop, cut prescription lenses, driven a forklift, been elbow-deep in chicken innards, discovered the tenacity of rats, managed a team of employees, and been vomited on.
My reporting on everything from agriculture to politics regularly appears in community publications under the Metroland-Torstar and Midwestern News banners, and in The Community Edition.
My photography has appeared on The Guardian, and in Briarpatch magazine.

Joanna Goodman's national best-seller, The Home for Unwanted Girls, was chosen by Waterloo Region's One Book One Community for 2019. I caught up with Goodman, who in addition to being a two-time national best-selling author, is also a business owner, a mother, and a wife - talk about a powerhouse of a woman.
I documented the infamous Ezra Avenue on St. Patrick's Day in 2016, to better understand youth drinking culture and why the unsanctioned party has gained international notoriety and become a "right of passage" in the university city of Waterloo, Canada.
