From prison walls to Amish barns, Rwandan hills and Amazonian jungles, to murder trials and the Stanley Cup final — my career in journalism has been blessed with a wild range of opportunities.

After studying English Lit and Education at Queen's University, I received a Masters degree in journalism at Carleton University. Carleton led to stints with the CBC, The Canadian Press and the Toronto Star, before I became a senior writer at Sportsnet magazine.

Since it launched in September 2011, the magazine has taken me on journeys to Haiti and through the Arctic, with stops at a few baseball diamonds and hockey rinks along the way. I've won gold at the National Magazine Awards for the sports writing and have been a finalist eight times across a range of categories. 

My time with Sportsnet has also led to exciting new opportunities in storytelling—including television features and non-fiction book publishing. Sportsnet's production of Home and Really Far Away: The Boys from Whale Cove was a finalist for Best Sports Program at the Canadian Screen Awards.

The Crazy Game, a memoir by former NHL goalie Clint Malarchuk, which I co-wrote, was published in the fall of 2014 by HarperCollins Canada and is a national bestseller. I also worked with Blue Jays broadcaster Buck Martinez on his bestselling book Change Up, which was published by HarperCollins Canada in spring 2016. 

Quinn: The Life of a Hockey Legend, a biography of the late Pat Quinn, was published by Viking Canada in fall 2015. It was longlisted for the 2017 RBC Taylor Price for literary non-fiction, and is a national bestseller.
