San Francisco, CA

I'm a storyteller with more than a decade of experience working in Canada's biggest newsrooms. I'm a big believer in going where you're growing and risking failure for future rewards. I'm happily outside my comfort zone, exploring the changing media landscape and how I can play a leadership role in this new environm...


Self Employed

Journalist, Storyteller

This summer, I quit my job to spend a year exploring the changing media landscape. The catalyst -- a failed attempt at the prestigious JSK fellowship at Stanford. I was a finalist, chosen from close to 400 international applicants. The final decision stung but my research into the world of media innovation lit a fire. After dozens of conversations with my small family, we decided to give ourselves one full year to learn and recalibrate our careers. We spent the summer brainstorming in Paris, where this photo was taken. We are currently in San Francisco, adding more fuel to our ideas!


Global News


I joined Global News in Toronto to launch The Morning Show, a live, local, 3 hr show on news, weather and entertainment. Hands down, one of my favourite jobs. In this role, as host and news anchor, I interviewed now PM Justin Trudeau, Jane Goodall, Richard Dawkins, Lawrence Fishburne, Malcolm Gladwell. I left the show to launch and anchor Global's new initiative that centralized 7 newscasts across the country in one newsroom.


De La Salle University

Bachelor of Arts, Political Science

Never mind the college or the degree. My time in the Philippines formed me into a global citizen. I was born just outside Manila before immigrating with my family to Canada at 9. But, at 15 my parents decided to move back. Learning about the world and politics from the perspective of a developing country was eye-opening. It taught me to view the world with a wide lens.

Washington Center for Politics and Journalism


It was a post-9/11, pre-Facebook, post-Lewinsky, George W. kind of Washington, DC. It was a summer discussing politics, journalism and the roles we played in it. This was an inspiring time for me, a chance to spend time at the White House, Pentagon, Senate and see power in action. I also learned from some inspiring journalists, the late Gwen Iffil and Helen Thomas.

Go where you're growing, always.
