I write stories about how technology and science shape culture, business, and law.

I was previously 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'm currently teaching a course at Ryerson University's School of Journalism (Fall 2016 semester).

Some places you can find my work: Bloomberg Businessweek, The Globe and Mail, CBC News, Hazlitt, The Walrus, The Atlantic, Vocativ, Atlas Obscura, Fast Company, and Ars Technica, amongst others.

I've written about the fascinating science of dead pigs and dead whales, traced the history of ransomware, investigated smartphone maker BlackBerry's handling of requests for user data, exposed surveillance technology used by Canadian police, asked the navy about its secret underwater microphones, interviewed undersea drone operators looking for work, talked to tech companies helping you talk to your tech, and was nominated for a Canadian National Magazine Award in 2013.

Sometimes I appear on CBC Radio/TV, BNN, and Bloomberg TV, too.

You can reach me on Twitter, LinkedIn, or email. My PGP key here.
