I joined Black Press in September 2021 as Publisher of the Free Press. My career in Newspapers started in 2003 in the call centre at the Calgary Sun, fielding calls from people who didn't receive their paper that day and selling subscriptions and promos. Since then, most of my career in Publishing has been in advertising. I have worked at several Community publications throughout BC and Southern Alberta as well as two Daily Newspapers.
