I AM UP TO THE TASK. I have worked in a non-partisan role on Parliament Hill, received a full-tuition academic scholarship, have a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from the University of Ottawa, and an Academic Medal from Governor General David Johnston. Known on social media as "Ontario Journalist," I cover local news on a number of platforms, am a regular contributor with the Hamilton Independent news site, and run Hamilton Neighbourhood Watch email updates - I know what's going on in our community. I am also a former segment host with Cable 14 and have been published in the Stoney Creek News and Hamilton Spectator.
I AM ALSO AS LOCAL AS IT GETS. I was born at McMaster Hospital, went to St. David Elementary on Centennial, and then Cardinal Newman on Gray Rd. My family has lived near Eastgate Mall my entire life.
I have been involved in local charity work, sports, scorekeeping, acting, mentoring of persons with disabilities, and youth programs.
My goal, first and foremost, is to build up our community, keep people informed, and hear resident concerns by being accessible and responsive. That's why I'm giving you my personal email and personal phone number.
