I’m a freelance journalist originally from western Canada, based in Prague.
I write about international social and political issues, from mental health/addictions and (im)migration and refugees to disinformation and propaganda, with a focus these days on central and eastern Europe. My work’s appeared in Coda Story, Al-Jazeera, CBC, the Sydney Morning Herald, the Canadian Medical Association Journal and others.
I also blog about the occasionally-boring finer points of opinion polls and sociological/attitudinal surveys, particularly when I see numbers and findings that make me grumpy.
I spent eight years after my MA working as a social/health researcher in Canada and the UK, working on everything from First Nation and Inuit mental health in Canada to big public health surveys in the UK. And now I do this.
