At Western, I teach the Beats and Feature Writing elective during the winter semester in the Master of Media in Journalism and Communication (MMJC) program. Previously, I was the program coordinator of the Journalism program at Conestoga College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning in Kitchener, Ont. (2008-2019). Aside from my previous teaching at Western (Journalism Law and Ethics in the former Master of Arts in Journalism program), I've taught in the School of Journalism at Ryerson University, where I served as the Maclean-Hunter Chair of Communication Ethics for two consecutive terms, 2006-08.

My full-time industry experience includes a variety of editorial positions at both The Globe and Mail (2006-08) and The London Free Press (1988-2006). I continue to write for a variety of publications and news portals on a freelance basis.

I also happen to have graduated with an MAJ from the former Graduate School of Journalism at Western in 1986.
