Any areas of specialization. I have special interest in heritage preservation and restoration, and have recently been accepted into the Canadian Association of Heritage Professionals (CAHP).
Community Involvement None, really, unless you count the whisky club I’m a member of…
Fav project and why. (under CKAI) One of my favourite projects was the Tett Centre for Creativity & Learning. Not only was this a fantastic initiative to rehabilitate an interesting and important heritage site, and a meaningful investment in Kingston’s art community, but it also happens to be in my neighbourhood! So, it’s a building I visit regularly, attend events at, and walk through with friends & family. This is a living example for me of how architecture builds and enhances community.
Any hobbies or family info you wish to share. I love the outdoors – paddling, cycling, XC skiing – whenever I can.
