Hi, I'm an agriculture reporter with Niagara This Week, covering stories from farm to fork, and everything in between – including wine. 


I've also: freelanced, flipped hamburgers, mowed lawns, sold computers, refereed, turned wrenches, worked as a rent-a-cop, cut prescription lenses, driven forklifts, been elbow-deep in chicken innards, discovered the tenacity of rats, managed a team of employees, and been vomited on. 

My reporting from the Niagara Peninsula can be found here, and for everything else, keep scrolling. 


Much of my freelance reporting has appeared in various community publications under the Metroland-TorStar, and Midwestern News banners. You can also find feature stories of mine at The Community Edition.

My photography has appeared on The Guardian, and in Briarpatch magazine.

Honors & Awards

2019 OCNA Honourable Mention, Best Rural Story 

2019 OPA Media Award


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.
