I’m currently working as a freelance journalist in British Columbia, Canada. I covered the US presidential primary in New Hampshire in the summer of 2015 and prior to that 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, Hungary, various locations in Western Canada and taught English in Georgia in 2012 while shooting the documentary This is Georgia.
I’ve contributed to various outlets including BBC, Reuters, The Hill, Foreign Policy, The Federalist, The Week and Roads & Kingdoms. My work has also appeared in the Toronto Sun and Canada’s largest independently-owned newspaper, the Chronicle Herald.
Journalism has taken me into a lot of engaging places and situations, including sporting events, economic discussion panels, political press conferences with Donald Trump, gatherings of white nationalists in Hungary, around separatist regions in the Caucasus, into crowds of Elvis Presley impersonators and their adoring fans and to rodeos where the introductory act involved lighting the ground on fire. Journalism—when it really gets going—is rarely dull.
I’m always open to receiving commissions. Thanks for visiting!
