John is happy to return to his hometown of Vancouver after living in our nation’s capital for more than a decade.
In Ottawa, John worked as a large-market reporter and producer, covering everything from all three levels government to stories of national interest in the region. His experience in the field has put him front and center during coverage of the tragic bus-train crash that claimed the lives of six people, and the attacks on the National War Memorial and Parliament Hill.
John’s creative storytelling and reporting has been recognized with the prestigious Edward R. Murrow as well multiple RTDNA awards.
John caught the journalism bug while working as an editor at the Ubyssey newspaper, as he obtained his undergraduate degree from UBC. He would later graduate from the Masters in Journalism program at Carleton University in Ottawa.
When John is not proudly sharing the stories of this community, he enjoys snowboarding and will never say no to a pick-up game of hockey. Most of all, John treasures the time he has with his lovely wife and three young boys, Oliver and twins, Hudson and Parker.
