Favourite city to visit? My answer changes depending on the season in Ottawa, but Vancouver has always been good to me.

Cats or dogs? Nice try…I’ve fallen into this trap before. No comment.

Favourite Architecture/Urban Design/Landscape Architecture Project? Tough question. While Bryant Park in NYC checks all my boxes, I’d have to say that any space, built or natural, that is filled with happy users has my respect.

Hobbies? Skiing, coaching little league, playing guitar sloppily and building stuff (less sloppily)
