(Fred Lum/The Globe and Mail)

I am a multimedia journalist and editor who has worked for publications in Toronto, Hong Kong, Chicago and Montreal.

Most recently, I was a digital and social media editor with The Globe and Mail. During my time at The Globe, I developed the news organization’s mobile and push notifications strategy, programmed start screens for news and business, set print and digital priorities for The Globe’s Report on Business section, and developed and executed social media strategies to increase audience awareness and engagement. I was also part of a working group that created and wrote an evening newsletter for commuters.

I have written for The Globe and Mail, Report on Business magazineTime, MarketWatchCanadian BusinessChatelaine and other publications. My work for Report on Business magazine was nominated for a National Magazine Award in 2017.

I’m a graduate of the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University (MSJ) and McGill University (BCom).

I am currently based in Toronto, and available for freelance work including writing, editing, fact-checking, consulting and social media.
