It all started in Hong Kong, about 23 years ago. The world was changing rapidly, and it was about that time that the Berlin Wall fell. I didn't know what I was watching, but on the TV I saw people celebrating a wall falling down, and the journalists reporting in front of that wall...and for a glimmering moment, I thought I could be there, too.
Fast forward to today, and I'm looking to be in those journalists' shoes, breaking the latest stories.
But the path to today isn't as straight and right-on as it should have been. During my time at William Aberhart High School in Calgary, I worked as a writer. Ditto with the University of Calgary's Gauntlet when I was there, too. But it didn't occur to me that TV and radio was the way to go, until I finally looked at expanding on my political science degree.
To keep a long story short -- I am a TV and radio journalist, and that's the way I want it to be. I'm a foodie, I'm a traveler of the world, I'm a soccer supporter (fan just doesn't do the way I like the game justice), and I'm a Mac. And oh yeah, I'm also a writer with SBNation's Waking The Red blog.
I tweet, I Facebook, I even Urbanspoon it too.
