I have also worked in a variety of public, private, and non-profit settings, including the Ontario Growth Secretariat, University of Oregon, University of Amsterdam, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, and the BC Non-Profit Housing Association. I have published freelance articles for Spacing and research articles in international academic journals. My award-winning edited book, Planning Canada: A Case Study Approach, is available on Amazon and through Oxford University Press (e-rental on Redshelf).
