Douglas: Design matters

An article for Douglas (Victoria's business magazine) about the importance of design aesthetic in business. Douglas is really a good magazine on the rise right now, and I personally love reading good business writing, so it's a lot of fun being involved with them.

Here's a link to the whole issue; my story is on page 54.

Todays Parent: The Debate

An opinion piece I wrote for Todays Parent magazine: I can be found arguing for the "con" side for this particular debate.

Wired: Barfipelago

I was honoured to get to write a piece for Wired magazine's website about the use of social media during a viral outbreak here in Victoria.

History of Propagandhi

I put a lot of time into this one... And I think it paid off. A detailed history of one of my favourite bands of all time, Propagandhi, for Exclaim! magazine. I got to interview ex-members such as John Samson of the Weakerthans, who has never spoken at length about his time in the band before, as well as Fat Mike of Fat Wreck Chords/NOFX, who had a very public falling out with the band that I attempt to make sense of here.
