Professional biography

Following the completion of my Master's degree I joined CBC Radio as a producer and documentary maker. I worked 10 years for the national radio program SUNDAY MORNING covering Atlantic regional, national, and international political affairs. After more than 20 years with CBC Radio I became the Atlantic Bureau Chief for the Cable Public Affairs Channel (CPAC) a contributor to the Discovery Channel and Global Television, and a documentary maker for the Canada's International Development Research Centre (IDRC). I also was a co-owner and editor of CURRENT,an alternative newspaper in St. John's.

Research interests

I returned to university in order to pursue my interests at length and in greater depth than what is possible in journalism. I am interested in culture, identity, Newfoundland, and the politics of recognition. As Newfoundland sheds its reputation as one of the poorest provinces in Canada I intend to track and analyze shifts in collective representation through the lens of tourism.
