Area of Expertise

Banking and financial services, media, postsecondary education and arts policy.
I'm the banking reporter for Report on Business. Since early 2017, I've covered the country's largest banks as well as other prominent financial services firms and fintechs. Over more than a decade reporting for The Globe, I've also covered media from 2014 to 2016, and higher education from 2010 to 2014. Early in my career I covered cultural policy and news for Globe Arts, and was fortunate to win the Edward Goff Penny Memorial Prize, which recognizes the work from young journalists. I've also written for both the editorial page and the Toronto section. I grew up in Toronto and joined The Globe in fall of 2007, after cutting my teeth in journalism at the Queen's Journal while studying at university in Kingston, Ont.
