I’m a journalist, documentary filmmaker and teacher, interested in bringing to light global stories that are overlooked. My work has been featured on 60 Minutes, where I’ve been a producer since 1999, as well as PBS Frontline, ABC News, Al Jazeera English, The New York Times, and even The Daily Show. I’ve won 3 Emmys, but my main reward is doing stories that have an impact on the world.
I also serve as Director of the University of British Columbia Graduate School of Journalism, where I established the International Reporting Program, in which I take graduate students abroad to practice global reporting in the field. We’re in the process of growing this into a non-profit Global Reporting Centre, which will produce major works of journalism, and experiment with new ways of gathering and disseminating global stories.
