Hi. I'm a Canadian-born journalist who traded the mountains of Vancouver for the bricked history of London.

I write for CNBC.com but previously worked on CNBC EMEA's flagship program Squawk Box Europe after interning at the bureau's news desk. My work has also been published by The Guardian, Canadian Press and CTV BC.

I graduated from the University of British Columbia with an B.A. in Political Science, but spent most of my degree writing for The Ubyssey.

My superpower of choice would be to speak every human language -- but for now I'm improving my Spanish and re-learning Russian.
