I’m David Topping, and I’m a Toronto-based journalist: I’m a staff writer at The Grid. Before that, I was the long-time editor of Torontoist, and, more briefly, the Toronto Editor of OpenFile. I’ve written for the Globe and Mail and the Toronto Standard. I also taught online journalism at the University of Toronto’s School of Continuing Studies. You might also remember me from this thing.
That illustration of me above is by the talented Johnnie Walker; in real life, I am not a cartoon.
