I specialized in television news during my master’s program, which gave me the skills to report, write, edit and produce TV news.
My experience working in TV stems mainly from my summer working at the CBC where I split my time between Toronto and Ottawa.
In Toronto, I was an associate producer for The National, the public broadcaster’s flagship newscast. In Ottawa, I worked as a reporter and writer for the local evening and nightly news.
As an associate producer at the National, I worked closely with other producers to bring daily stories to air. In particular, I helped put together a number of feature stories for CBC’s 2014 FIFA World Cup coverage.
While in Ottawa, I pitched original, hyper-local stories and within my first week, I had reported and produced a two-minute feature story for the evening news. For the remainder of my time there, I continued to have my reports aired on both radio and TV.
Below you can find a few of my stories from Ottawa.

During my master’s program, I worked on several TV stories but the one below is my favourite. I profiled a former football player turned master’s student who was developing a method to better track and treat concussions in football. You can watch the full story below:
