He began his career in 1987 in Ottawa as the research associate to the investigative journalist and author John Sawatsky.
In 1991 he moved to Toronto, where he joined the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's flagship investigative program the fifth estate, tackling stories involving political corruption, environmental issues, and the influence of lobbying on health policy in Canada.
In 2002, he joined the investigative newsmagazine Disclosure as senior editor, where he produced his first story on offshore tax avoidance, as well as a groundbreaking exposé into body-checking injuries in children's hockey.
He returned to the fifth estate in 2007, running an investigation that proved store clerks were stealing major lottery wins from unsuspecting customers. He also produced a series of stories revealing how a former Canadian prime minister received cash-stuffed envelopes from a German middleman.
