I write in-depth features on outdoor adventures, culture, travel and natural history

I write in-depth features on outdoor adventures, culture, travel and natural history loaded with well-researched context and sometimes first person experience. I cover topics I know well. Topics where my experience as a passionate naturalist, expedition guide, history-buff and traveller are useful. I have a deep interest, alright, slight obsession, with polar exploration, Canadian history and the Arctic. I love research and take a deep dive into the topics that I cover. 


I expand on topics; provide context. I let a story breathe. 


Stories need characters, arcs, emotion and cold, hard, undisputed facts. I provide the thoughts and opinions of experts, and occasionally my own. I search for the nuances that make a story unique, angles that can only be found through exploring a topic thoroughly and getting to know the characters whose perspectives are invaluable to a narrative.


I include voices that are seldom heard, but provide critical context and understanding of a topic. 


The stories I share are impactful, provoke thought and inspire action. They're published digitally, but always preferred in print. They come with beautiful photos that elevate the story through visual context. 

I tell stories with meaning. I’m a journalist, and a storyteller.

I often publish short stories on my Substack "From Our Beautiful Planet."

I broke this story which gained international attention and was picked up by news outlets including CBC, NBC, Yahoo Sports, Bleacher Report and Business Insider in the lead up to the 2016 Olympic Games
