I support the brand strategy and communications team at SickKids Foundation, which fundraises for The Hospital for Sick Children. I'm also a board member at Social Planning Toronto, where we challenge inequity to spark social and policy change.
My work in the non-profit sector and as a journalist, editor, instructor, and marketer has appeared in newspapers, magazines, books, TV news and radio programs, podcasts, and classrooms. I've also overseen editorial teams to support TV shows as well as a festival in Central Park. In New York City, Silicon Valley, and Abu Dhabi, I helped manage global newsrooms of multimedia correspondents during tumultuous transitions such as the Arab Spring and 2016 U.S. presidential election. In Toronto, I documented Shopify's impact and growth into Canada's most valuable company and led teams of content marketers, video producers, and content designers there during the COVID-19 pandemic.
That said, my first love remains writing. Over the years, I have covered social issues such as food security, human rights advocacy, and supporting marginalized workers for publications including Entrepreneur, Inc., OZY, and HuffPost. I also spent eight months reporting for The Wall Street Journal's “Waste Lands” series, which revisited the little-noticed aftermath of the U.S. nuclear-arms buildup and became a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize.
