I like working in teams which is what television documentary making is about. I've researched, written, produced and led as senior producer in charge of documentary production for several TV Networks.

Over the course of my first career as a journalist I have helped win over 35 national and international awards for excellence.

My talents have always been achieving the 'get' interview. I bring to the table the ability to find the one person who is the 'grandfather' of the piece: a phrase I learned from my mentor at CBC's the fifth estate, Mr. Ron Haggart. This is the person who tells the story to you because you endear their trust. They go on camera without the camouflage of being in shadow (a cheat, professionally) to share their most heartbreaking life episodes. In the example of the award-winning documentary o.com, Nicole fearlessly exposed her feelings in this first ever report about the millions of people addicted to internet-sex.
