I’m David Wylie

I’m a B.C.-based journalist and founder of the oz. 

You may have seen my byline around the beautiful Okanagan Valley, where I write for magazines, newspapers and websites. I have a syndicated column, By The Ounce.

Over two decades, I’ve covered the news in Toronto, Ottawa and Kelowna – racking up lots of bylines in daily newspapers across the country. I’ve covered technology and video games, wineries and weed, climate and B.C. wood, courts and crime, and everything in between.

There’s more to media than just journalism. I’ve done many jobs that make up the gears of the daily news cycle: communications advisor, social media manager, election strategist, press release writer, spokesman, photographer, creative designer, etc.

I also have some pet projects, including:
