Peter Henderson

Writer and editor. Freelance raconteur.

I am a writer and editor working in Toronto.

Until 2016 I was a journalist, covering covering finance, business and national affairs. Now I do the same thing for a corporate audience. 

I spent 11 years living in Ottawa, studying at the University of Ottawa and Carleton University. While getting my master's in journalism at Carleton, I worked at the Ottawa Citizen, Postmedia News, and Reuters. My thesis was on The Thief and the Cobbler, the lost masterpiece of the greatest living animator, Richard Williams. I was there in Los Angeles in December 2013 at the movie's first-ever public showing, where Williams for the first time met with a young man who had taken it upon himself to rebuild this supposedly lost work and post it on YouTube. It was pretty cool.

After graduation I worked for the Wire Report and Reuters, then moved to Toronto to work at the Canadian Press and Yahoo News. Why have one job when you could have two? Burnout, that's why. 

I'm trying to use Twitter less, but it's not working. Instagram is great. My past accomplishments are on LinkedIn.
And I am never, ever sick at sea.
