New Roots Radio

New Roots Radio was a weekly newsmagazine distributed on community radio stations in Canada. It ran from 2012 to 2013. I recruited and mentored a core team of ten young volunteer host/reporters in our base of Halifax, Nova Scotia, and another 15 contributors from around the country. They produced a series of documentaries and reports on immigrant life in Canada. The program tried to ditch the cliches of "seeking a better life" and really understand how immigrants deal with living in a new country, one that doesn't always live up to their standards. It was awarded a $9000 grant from the National Community Radio Association of Canada.


Hello. I'm a journalist, radio producer and teacher. I've worked in Latin America and the Caribbean for most of my career. My work has taken me across a minefield, into a gunfight, paddling a dugout canoe and inside the homes of many brave and generous people. I have also produced several major international reporting projects where a large part of my job was recruiting and mentoring local reporters. I love teaching, and besides journalism, I have taught soccer, robotics, anthropology and English.
