Hello. My name is Alex.
I’m a journalist and radio producer based in Vancouver. I’m a producer for Cited and an associate producer for CBC Radio. I’ve reported for CBC Aboriginal, Arctic Deeply, Discourse Media and Canadian Psychiatry Aujourd’hui. I’m also the host and producer of Theoretically Speaking, a podcast about absurd science. I’m interested in ideas and culture.
Before becoming a journalist, I studied neuroscience at the University of Calgary. I spent my summers in labs, researching epilepsy, the neurocircuitry of stress and neuronal regulation. After finishing my thesis, I decided that instead of doing science, I’d rather tell stories.
