In short, I'm like you: just trying to leave the world better than I found it.

My work as a journalist, editor, instructor, and marketer has appeared online and in print, on TV news programs, podcasts, and radio, as well as within classrooms. I've also overseen editorial teams to support TV shows and 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 during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a leader, I strive to be a compassionate guide while sponsoring growth opportunities, facilitating rapid organizational change, running creative sprints, hiring new team members, and launching timely initiatives. But 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 reported for The Wall Street Journal's “Waste Lands” series, which revisited the little-noticed aftermath of the U.S. nuclear-arms buildup and earned a Pulitzer Prize nomination.

Now I work on the brand strategy and communications team at SickKids Foundation, where we believe the well-being of children is among the most powerful ways to improve society. I'm also a board member at Social Planning Toronto, which challenges inequity—through knowledge generation, debate, civic engagement, advocacy, and collaboration—to spark social and policy change.
