What I've done A peek into jobs, work, journalism

I'm the editor-in-chief of SkyNews, the Canadian magazine and website dedicated to astronomy and space news, owned by The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada and distributed to all of its membership. This position allows me to tie my passion for journalism and communication to my love of astronomy and science.

Before taking on this position, I was the publisher of a small-town newspaper in rural Alberta for about four years. Sounds passé, but the Athabasca Advocate was a weekly print publication moving toward digital that connected about 10,000 people in the heart of northern Alberta's resource economy.

I've also been a content editor at the Toronto Star, helping to put together their daily tablet edition, working with most sections at the newspaper — sports, national, city, arts, travel and the investigative team.

I was the senior Toronto editor at Newzulu Canada, a crowdsourced newswire that worked with AFP, Getty and the Canadian Press among other agencies. I was also ScribbleLive's global training lead, teaching real-time news strategies to hundreds of reporters at organizations like Reuters, ESPN, NTB in Norway and Al Jazeera.
