I’m an urban planner, researcher, and writer interested in urban issues: housing, immigration, transportation, growth management, and governance. I work as a consultant in Toronto with expertise in:
- Regional planning, research, and policy development (Ontario Growth Secretariat–Ministry of Municipal Affairs & Housing)
- Housing policy and research (Ontario Ministry of Municipal Affairs & Housing, Elizabeth Fry Society of Greater Vancouver, BC Non-Profit Housing Association, Social Planning & Research Council of BC, Canada Mortgage & Housing Corporation)
- Transportation planning, policy development, and research (University of Amsterdam, TransLink, Federation of Canadian Municipalities)
- Teaching and supervising Masters thesis research (University of Amsterdam, University of British Columbia)
- Market research (Mustel Group)
- Writing and editing
I have a B.L.Arch from the University of Toronto, M.A. and Ph.D. from the UBC School of Community and Regional Planning (SCARP). I write for online publications and academic journals, and am currently editing a book of case studies in Canadian planning.
