This is a story of a struggle against nature. It is one that involves you, me, and the vast meteorological forces beyond our comprehension, or control. It is the story of one journalist’s mother, who must get to the grocer before all the good Christmas turkeys are taken, and in particular one journalist, who finds himself too apathetic, or too comfortable, to get off his chair, put on coat, and go outside. It is a story of chaos versus order, of stagnation versus progress, of a snowed-in driveway versus a clear one.
First update in a while but things have been busy over the past few months. I’m wrapping up my year at kings and just finished a month-long intership with the National Post in Toronto. I had the amazing opportunity to work under Rob Roberts, Senior Producer, and Joe Hood, World Editor, on a number of stories and projects that I’m really proud. I’ll be using all I learned to better my blog here and do more in-depth reporting going forward. I currently have a few other projects on the go that will see the light of day in the coming months, and will be working freelance for a bit, so expect more articles here.
For now, here’s some of my work that appeared in NatPo over the past month.
For the past few weeks I’ve had the great opportunity to work with fellow King’s Journalism students on the UNews site, reporting on news in the Halifax area. I was fortunate enough to be able to cover everything from student workshops to city hall and legislature proceedings. We all had a lot of fun, learned a lot, and think the whole thing ended too soon. Be sure to check out and follow the rest of the UNews team:
Presented here are a few of my pieces produced for UNews.
