Current: Editorial Fellow at Axios (2023-2024)

Previous: Data and visual journalist at CTV News, data reporter at The Puget Sound Business Journal, markets contributor at TheStreet.com, financial writer at Seeking Alpha and tech/AI writer at VentureBeat.

Deep dive: Before joining Axios (my work at Axios is highlighted in my resume), I worked at CTV News-National in Toronto as a data and visuals journalist, covering a wide range of stories— from hidden COVID-19 fatalities and rising Omicron numbers to immigration backlogssoaring inflation and climate change. I am comfortable with mapping tools and have created multimedia interactives through ESRI’s GIS interface. These stories included “50 Years Later: Expulsion from Uganda” and “Canadian skies turn lethal for migratory birds.”

Our coverage of immigration backlogs and long wait times gained national attention, pushing authorities to fasten processing times through a special dashboard for applicants to track their applications.

Before CTV News, I worked for The Puget Sound Business Journal(PSBJ), one of the 44 local markets of American City Business Journals, for about 2.5 years.

As a data reporter, I covered special sections for the paper such as the economy of food trucks, the pandemic impact on small businesses, financial aid during the pandemic and supply chain disruption. Our special coverage of the underreported cases at long-term care facilities during the pandemic led to a county-level dashboard to track COVID-19 cases daily.

I managed the local database to produce weekly lists of regional businesses with insights on the findings, eventually published as the Annual Book of Lists.

Earlier in my career, I covered financial topics for The Street in 2013 for 2.5 years, writing extensively on stock markets, earnings reports, the Federal Reserve, interest rates, campaign finance, Brexit and personal finance. My bylines are in Reuters, Yahoo Finance, and MSN Money.
