Jesse Snyder is an energy reporter at the Financial Post based in Calgary, Alberta. He writes about a range of topics including international energy markets, technology, energy policy and finance. Prior to that he was senior writer at Alberta Venture and Alberta Oil magazines, where he covered a number of business subjects from energy to real estate markets.
Jesse has covered business in various overseas markets including Bogota, Colombia, where he spent eight months writing about mining and commodities. He also spent a summer in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia—also writing about commodities—which was a strange and sometimes terrifying experience. In 2013 he was in Beijing and Hong Kong to report on Chinese investment in Canada's oil sands for Alberta Oil magazine. He rarely writes in the first person.
