Personal news time! Starting in July, I'm joining the @CdnPress_Sports team. I'll still be here in Vancouver, covering the Canucks, Lions, Whitecaps and other sporty stuff. Very much looking forward to it!

From sending media trainers to northern Ont FN’s, to presenting workshops to newsrooms and journalism classes, and consulting on style guides, it’s been meaningful work. However, I’ve decided to move on to pursue storytelling myself

Life update: My German visa is expiring and I failed to find a European to marry, so I'll be back in Toronto in two weeks to start working as an assistant editor @torontolife. Super excited about the opportunity! (Feel free to send support in the form of GIFs.)

It’s true. After 32 years of reporting I’m leaving to work for agriculture Canada to contribute hopefully in a different way. pic.twitter.com/ae1XmXv5S1

Pretty stoked to announce that I'm going from assistant to associate editor at macleans/moneysense/cdnbiz. I'll be doing social media stuff for the pubs (and hopefully will continue to do videos/writing/etc). ?

Well #yql, I'm off. I won't be back to work at the @Leth_Herald until July 23. I'm excited for my next adventure, where I'll be spending 6 weeks in Toronto working for the Canadian Press as this year's Tom Hanson Photojournalism Award recipient. Follow my journey here! <3 pic.twitter.com/Gc2TEoAlDp
