Yes, I'm the business reporter at NowMedia Group.
But, really, a reporter is a reporter regardless of area of expertise.
After all, we're simply storytellers.
I'm so lucky and honoured to have found the business beat.
It allows me, everyday, to speak with the movers and shakers who shape Kelowna's business community and local economy.
While a portion of business reporting is facts and figures, statistics, economics and money, it all ultimately boils down to people.
If you can find out what makes an individual entrepreneur tick, you can determine what makes their company successful and how that contributes to the overall health of the Kelowna economy.
I've been a reporter in this dynamic city for 34 years, first in radio, at the Capital News for four years and then the Kelowna Daily Courier for 26 years.
It was Bryden Winsby, the news editor at the Capital News while I worked there, who convinced me that specializing was the way to go and minted me the business reporter.
The rest, as they say, is history.
With more than a year under my belt at NowMedia Group, I truly have the best of both worlds.
Plus, I'm on the cutting edge of digital writing for the NowCities platforms, including KelownaNow.
