Awards

For 2014, I won three RTDNA awards for data storytelling, and was shortlisted for best personal portfolio at the Data Journalism Awards. That year Carmen Chai and I shared a Canadian Medical Association award for health reporting.

For 2015, I won the RTDNA data storytelling award for Ontario, and was shortlisted for the same regional award for the Prairies.

For much of 2010, I was a contributing editor at openfile.ca, where my Poppy File project, which mapped Toronto’s Second World War deaths at the household level, won a Canadian Online Publishing Award and was shortlisted for an Online News Association award and a National Magazine Award.

I was a Web editor at thestar.com from 2001 to 2010. My Map of the Week blog, launched in mid-2008, attracted over 1.5 million page-views and just under 1,000 comments. In 2009, the blog was shortlisted as a shortlisted for the Knight-Batten Awards for Innovations in Journalism.
