I’m a communications professional, journalist and PhD student. I write extensively on terrorism, the expansion of surveillance technology and the normalization of states of emergency across the globe. My academic work has appeared in the peer-reviewed Western Journal of Legal Studies. My news stories created for The Canadian Press have been widely published across major news outlets such as The Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, CTV News, CBC News, Yahoo News and MSN. I’ve also worked in the federal government. I wrote hundreds of news releases, media advisories and ministerial speeches for a regional development agency called Western Economic Diversification Canada. I also tracked the impacts of the largest governmental program on climate change and adaptation—an initiative representing $22-million in funding—at Natural Resources Canada. While I’m away from work and school, I travel on the cheapest fares I can find. Reach out to me if you like talking politics, journalism, mass surveillance, climate change or Seinfeld.
