To answer your question: I’m on TV


Questions I’ve been deflecting, answering and avoiding for the last decade:

Why don’t you have kids?

Why aren’t you married?

When are you getting a TV show?

I can answer the last one for you.

Today.
I’m getting a TV show today.

Father’s Day: A personal essay on love, loss and love


A couple years back I spent a few months woodshedding, taking a class in creative non-fiction at Ryerson University here in Toronto. I didn’t have a specific reason for doing it beyond curiosity, and a desire to tackle a new challenge. On the job I write about other folks all the time but this class … Continue reading

The story behind #Sportonomics


Confession: In August 2011, the moment I learned I’d been traded from the Toronto Star’s sports department to its business team, I felt a twinge of anxiety over how I’d manage this task. More than a twinge, actually. I worried for a week about how I’d connect with an audience interested in finance and the economy … Continue reading

Glen Johnson and My Stringer & Avon Moment


Fans of The Wire will remember the scene toward the end of season three, when Avon Barksdale and Stringer Bell take a brief break from plotting each other’s downfall to meet on a rooftoop and talk about the old days while gazing out over Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

Melissa Hernandez: One on One With a World Champ


Boxing isn’t dead. It’s shacking up with MMA and Krav Maga and living quite comfortably in south Florida, where pro fighters from around the world train for big fights in multipurpose gyms from Fort Lauderdale to Kendall. How do I know? Because, contrary to what I told you guys in my last post, I couldn’t … Continue reading

Doesn’t that look like sex? A goodbye post


No, not for good — but you can consider this my pre-emptive out-of-office autoreply. Tuesday morning I fly to Miami for a few days of warm weather and beaches and food trucks and salsa. Plans include catching up with old and new friends, watching the O’Jays at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino, and possibly seeing … Continue reading

The “P” stands for Persistence, Promotion of Self


I don’t know if life was trying to send me a message, but I spent the first few weeks of my new job as a business reporter at the Toronto Star writing stories about ex-journalists. First came a Q&A with former freelance writer and current personal finance guru Gail Vaz-Oxlade, and shortly afterward I caught … Continue reading
