In March 2016, I began working as a staff writer for Vancity Buzz, a hyperlocal news website covering Vancouver and the largest digital-only publication in Western Canada.
In June 2016, Vancity Buzz became Daily Hive, and expanded across Canada, with desks in Calgary, Montreal, and Toronto, as well as our headquarters in Vancouver.
In January 2017, I became Senior Staff Writer, writing and editing stories, as well as training interns, and running special projects such as the BC Election 2017.
I left Daily Hive in February 2018 to pursue other writing projects.
