Here, you’ll find links to some of my journalistic work.
My story about the problem of binge drinking and excessive partying was published in The Aquinian, as well as on the CUPwire as part of a national project about campus drinking.
Only a couple of decades ago, making the NHL was a distance dream if you were from the Maritimes. It’s a different story today. The best player in the NHL is from Nova Scotia and Maritimers had a banner year at the 2011 NHL draft. This story, which won a student award at the 2012 Atlantic Journalism Awards, looks at what’s changed to make the jump to the pros a tangible goal for Maritime kids.
A basketball team rebuilt from tragedy in Bathurst, N.B. after seven players died in bus crash months earlier. The team won a provincial championship and a TV movie was made about that journey. But not everyone wants to watch that movie. Some of the families of the boys who died in the crash say the movie exploits the tragedy.
The St. Thomas University men’s volleyball team won a league championship after the previous season was lost to a hazing suspension. Only one player returned from that controversial squad, so the team had to rebuild from scratch. Almost every member was a rookie and they weren’t pegged to win. I covered the championship-winning game for STU’s campus paper and the story went national on the Canadian University Press wire.
I wrote, produced and voiced this story on location in Oromocto, N.B. for the New Brunswick Beacon.
