I am the primary author and editor of PrivacyScan. I have been in the privacy field since 2003, starting out in the federal government working on the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act, and later assisting in the development of the dreaded anti-spam law while completing my law degree at the University of Ottawa. I am a lawyer with nNovation LLP, where I have been since 2009, advising clients in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors on things like privacy, e-marketing, e-commerce, information security and access to information.

Privacy is a quickly evolving field with no shortage of complex issues, so there are times when organizations really need to hire someone like me to help out. But by applying my experience to provide practical and informed guidance, PrivacyScan helps a lot of privacy professionals figure things out on their own, which is why I enjoy doing this.
