I began reporting on Canada's land-based casinos in the early '90s when the casinos' popularity started to grow among both Canadian and foreign gamblers. Throughout over 2 decades of reporting, both for print journalism and TV news shows, I documented different casino trends, beginning with the small casino venues which popped up on First Nation Reserves and expanding to reports of deluxe casino sites which can now be found in almost every major Canadian cities. Today I serve as a confidant of Canadian casino owners and operators who look to me to help them decide where to build new casinos, which games to feature and how to expand casino entertainment options for Canadians. I was the first Canadian writer to identify the impact that the new cybercurrencies would have on Canadian casinos. This work has helped the casinos prepare for the new payment methods in a timely fashion.
