The Globe and Mail
The Globe and Mail is Canada’s national newspaper. I worked in the Globe’s Toronto newsroom as a copy editor in the summers of 2012 and 2013, and another four weeks working as a reporter in December 2011. My work has appeared throughout the paper. Some highlights include:
“The perfect summer day and its role in Canada’s growing workplace absenteeism” - a feature I pitched exploring the reasons employees call in sick, which ran on A1 on July 12, 2012.
“The staggering truth about drunk walking” - a story I pitched about the dangers of walking while intoxicated, which ran in the national editions on December 29, 2011.
“Police charge jailed man in series of arsons” – Dec. 21, 2011.
“Woman in ‘grave condition’ after being stabbed in neck” – Dec. 28, 2011

The Canadian Press is a multimedia news agency which produces content for major news outlets across Canada and around the world. As a reporting intern at CP's Ottawa bureau, I worked on compelling breaking news stories, and wrote articles which were published across the country.

The Ottawa Citizen
The Ottawa Citizen is the major daily newspaper in Canada's capital, with a weekly print and online readership of almost 500,000. I helped cover the 2011 federal election, and wrote a couple freelance articles.

"Beer, nachos and Starcraft II" - Aug. 30, 2011
The Charlatan is Carleton University's independent student weekly, and the first newspaper I ever worked at.
I served as editor-in-chief for the 2010-11 volume, overseeing a staff of 16 employees and more than 360 volunteer reporters. We produced 30 issues, and every week I managed staff, edited dozens of articles, and was responsible for getting all 8,500 copies of the paper printed on time.
Before my time in the big office, I was news editor, responsible for assigning stories, editing articles, paginating the section and staying on top of breaking news.
I've written more articles for the Charlatan than I'd care to count. Here are a few of my favourites:
"Bank of Canada governor speaks at Carleton" - March 11, 2010
"Album review: John K. Samson's Provincial" - Feb. 15, 2012
"CU curlers 'disappointed' with first nationals appearance" - March 21, 2012
