I’m chief journalist for HC Online , HRM Online Canada, and also contribute to HR Director Magazine. I joined Key Media in 2013 and have written/write for a number of online publications, including the recently launched Absolute Power.  I have a passion for technology and human rights, as well as the broad spectrum of HR and IR topics that I write about daily.
 
In 2012, I graduated from Macquarie University with a BA in Writing, focusing on investigative journalism. During my time as an undergraduate I worked as both a tutor and marker in the University’s game design course.
 
I strive to craft hard-hitting and compelling stories that present an even-handed view on subjects, sparking friendly debate and conversation amongst the HR community.
