After graduating Langara College's journalism diploma program Cameron moved to Salmon Arm to start working as a reporter for the Salmon Arm Observer. Nearly a year later Cameron moved back down to the Lower Mainland where he worked a short stint for his hometown newspaper the Delta Optimist before moving on to Vancouver Is Awesome. When not diving down endless rabbit holes on Twitter Cameron can be found working on a new project in his garage or outside taking photos of the great outdoors.
