I have been a journalist and trainer for more than three decades. I finished my career with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as Senior Producer of the CBC's flagship program, The Current.
Along with being a journalist I have trained journalists throughout Canada with the CBC, at the School of Journalism at University of King's College in Halifax, with IMPACS is SE Asia, with CJFE in Indonesia and the JHU CCP in Ethiopia, Tanzania and Nigeria.
Much of my work in Africa focused on developing radio programs for behaviour change with respect to HIV/AIDS, malaria, safe motherhood, orphans and vulnerable children and youth at risk.
Virtually all of the training I give is related to narrative non-fiction - story telling. It is through personal stories that we explore major issues and solutions to problems. e
