I have lived and worked in every region of Canada and done field work from: the Johnson Space Centre in Houston Texas, Cape Canaveral in Florida, the Museum of Broadcasting and CBS News Headquarters in New York, the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, and the cease fire line in Cyprus. In my 14 year career in journalism, I worked at the local and network levels in both Canada and the United States.

I also taught at the college level and regularly lecture at several universities and colleges. I've been trained in leadership education at Harvard University and in dispute resolution at Osgoode Hall Law School.
