Hello! I’m Deidre. (dee-dree)

I'm a Senior Editor at The Pointer, a digital publication delivering world-class journalism to the residents of Mississauga and Brampton.

Previously, I was an Editor at Toronto Storeys and a 2019 Fellow in Global Journalism at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy. As a journalist, my work has appeared in the National Post, Refinery29, The Cut, Salon, Vice, CBC News, Maclean's Magazine, Brooklyn Magazine, and more than 30 publications.

I've appeared on CTV's Your Morning show, co-hosted CANADALAND's SHORT CUTS podcast, judged the John H. McDonald Awards for Excellence in Student Journalism, run an equitable reporting workshop at the Ryerson School of Journalism and appeared on numerous radio, television and podcast programs.

As a multidisciplinary professional, I work at the intersections of digital and storytelling. Let’s work together.
