I’m Craig Lord.
I’m a journalist. I graduated from Carleton University in 2016. I went into the field with a dream of being a national broadcaster. I’ve had a lot of exciting opportunities and experiences so far, and I’m still excited to be working in a demanding and dramatically changing field.
I’ve worked for a number of publications, including The Globe and Mail, The Hill Times, Kitchissippi Times, Centretown News and Ottawa Business Journal, where I work today as a multimedia reporter. I also had the chance to be the first web editor for a startup tech publication, Techopia, where I was tasked with building a web presence and working with a team to develop exactly what Techopia.ca would be. To date, this has been one of my most rewarding and satisfying creative experiences as a journalist.
This summer I’ve worked as a producer for CTV’s Canada AM and as a digital editor with The Globe and Mail’s video team. I’m also the host and co-producer of a neat project called One New Message, a podcast about people finally opening up about the messages they’ve always wanted to leave. I’m a strong believer in digital-first approaches to storytelling and am excited by the changes that are happening in this industry.
Outside of the media, I’ve also had a number of incredible summers working with the SHAD program at Carleton, where aspirational high school students spend a month getting to know each other and facing new challenges. I, myself, was a participant in the program in 2010 and see my summers as a chance to give back the experience I gained in my time at SHAD.
Apart from that, I’m a pretty good photographer and even better Toronto Blue Jays fan. I shot all of the photos and videos you’ll see on this site.
Hang around my website if you want to get more of a sense of me and the work I do.
Get in touch if you’d like to chat about a project. If it’s a cool idea and a good challenge, I’m already interested.
