Black Press (May 2011 – present)

I’ve been writing for the Black Press newspaper chain in B.C. for several newspaper in New Westminster, Burnaby, Abbotsford, Mission, and now in Tsawwassen since August 2012.

From Sep. 27-Oct. 8 of 2010 I visited Afghanistan as a member of a media familiarization visit organized by the Department of National Defence.

Here are some pictures and articles of that trip:
