My name is Isaac Phan Nay, and I report about climate, science, labour, business and politics. Recently, I wrote about the portable farms feeding Canada's remote communities and the Canadians fighting light pollution to protect dark skies. My work has appeared in Canada's National Observer, Winnipeg Free Press and the Breach.

Previously, I reported for the Toronto Star where I covered breaking news and crime. I investigated a conservation authority’s legal action after developers farmed on provincially significant wetlands and reported how three Cree First Nations pushed back against Ontario over damage to boreal forests.

I also co-hosted and produced Charlatan Live, a weekly community podcast about news, research, arts and sports in Ottawa.

Now, I'm based in Vancouver, looking for work as a reporter or producer. If you're looking for a reporter skilled at in-depth and breaking news coverage, then your search ends here.

Thank you for your consideration. If you want to see more of my work, visit www.isaacnay.ca

Hi -- my name is Graph and I'm a freelance news editor and journalist based in San Francisco. I was most recently a fact-checker and misinformation reporter at the AP, and before that, a politics/policy editor at POLITICO. I primarily handled newsletters there, so that's my specialty -- if you've got a Substack that needs polishing, hit me up!

My areas of interest are politics generally and mis/disinfo specifically, though I'm somewhat undifferentiated and would love to find a policy niche I can own. I'm an accomplished editor, but have spent most of my time on that side of the desk, and I'm hoping to round out my experience as a reporter now.

I'd like to get into full-time work again, though if that's in the form of a temporary contract or on a fill-in basis, that'd be fine by me -- there are some educational opportunities I also have my eye on. Bonus points if I'm able to work alongside more senior journalists and look over their shoulders!

Here's my website, where you can find clips and contact info: https://bylinegraph.net/
