I’m a freelance journalist and analyst currently based in Brazil. I’m originally from Western Canada and upstate New York.
Previously I’ve reported from the Middle East, eastern and western Europe, the Caucasus and North America. I also wrote a book in 2021 entitled Cultworld.
I covered the US presidential primary in New Hampshire in the summer of 2015. Prior to that I served as managing editor of The Enterprise-Bulletin weekly newspaper in Collingwood, Ontario, Canada.
I’ve reported from the former-Soviet Republic of Georgia south of Russia, Israel, Palestine, Brazil, Suriname, Guyana, France, Germany, Hungary, Costa Rica, Poland, Ukraine and various locations in Western and Eastern Canada.
I also taught English in Georgia in 2012 while shooting the documentary This is Georgia.
I’ve reported for and contributed to various outlets including BBC, Reuters, The National Interest, Washington Examiner, Mediaite, The Hill, First Things magazine, Al Jazeera, Foreign Policy, The Russell Kirk Center, Il Giornale (Italy), Religion Unplugged, New Statesman, Arc Digital, The Federalist, Spectator USA, The Week, The American Conservative, National Newswatch, Toronto Sun, The Halifax Chronicle Herald and Roads & Kingdoms.
Journalism has taken me into a lot of interesting places and situations, including sporting events, economic discussion panels with neoliberals in Washington, DC, gatherings of white nationalists in Hungary and Hasidic pilgrims in Ukraine, press conferences with Donald Trump, around separatist regions in the Caucasus, through muddy jungle roads in the Brazilian Amazon during the COVID pandemic, mingling in crowds of hundreds of Elvis Presley impersonators in central Ontario and to rodeos in small town northern Canada where the opening act was lighting the ground on fire.
Journalism—when it really gets going—is rarely dull.
