About

I am a writer and producer, based in Toronto and New York. I'm also a Fellow at New America. Lately, my work has focused on healthcare and bioethics.

 

My story “What Happened in Room 10?” won a George Polk Award for Magazine Reporting in 2021. It is the product of a months-long investigation into the first COVID outbreak in an American nursing home — and, more broadly, the rise of the for-profit nursing home industry.

 

Previously, I worked as a documentary film correspondent and producer at NBC News. I made short documentaries from across the United States and abroad. And I appeared on The Today Show, NBC Nightly News and MSNBC.

 

Before that, I was as a foreign correspondent for VICE News, based in London, and Europe reporter for Maclean's, Canada's largest news magazine. I won a Canada National Magazine Award for my coverage of Ukraine's Euromaidan revolution. 

 

In a former life, I was a graduate student of History and Philosophy at Oxford University, and worked as a researcher for the historian Timothy Garton Ash.
