Hi! I'm
Matthew Braga.

I'm a freelance journalist, based in Toronto. I write stories about how technology and science shape culture, business, and politics.

Most recently, I was the Canadian editor of Motherboard, Vice Media's science and technology website. Before that, I was a business and technology reporter for the Financial Post.

I've worked on investigations with reporters at The Globe and Mail and CBC News, and had stories published by Hazlitt, The Walrus, The Atlantic, Vocativ, Atlas Obscura, Fast Company, Ars Technica, and The Toronto Star.

Some favourites:


I also worked with The Globe and Mail's national security reporter Colin Freeze on a series of stories exposing the RCMP's use of Stingray surveillance technology in Canada for the first time:


In 2013, I was nominated for a Canadian National Magazine award.

Some of the topics I'm interested in include surveillance, privacy, cybersecurity, social networks, critical infrastructure, national security, space, and oceans.

I'm always looking for new opportunities to write, edit and speak. You can reach me on Twitter, LinkedIn, or email.

For secrets, my PGP key is here.
