Hi. I’m Marc.

I’m a bilingual multimedia journalist based in Ottawa. At the moment, I’m completing my Master of Journalism degree at Carleton University.

In summer 2016, I interned at the CBC’s London (U.K.) bureau, where I helped to produce coverage of the Brexit referendum and the Queen’s 90th anniversary celebrations. I’ve also interned with CBC’s The House and the Kingston Whig-Standard.

My work has been published or broadcast by the CBC, Maclean’s, the Ottawa Citizen, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the Kingston Whig-Standard and National Geographic Traveler.

So far, I’ve visited more than 25 countries, and managed to pick up a third language (German) along the way.

Before making the switch to journalism, I worked as a policy analyst with the federal government. I also have an MA in political studies from Queen’s University.
