What I do, and how I do it, is informed and leveraged by my diverse range of skills and experience across a range of disciplines and contexts. I view every project as a unique experience, with its own set of challenges and opportunities. So, I approach each project differently – tailoring the consultation, analysis and implementation actions to best suit the needs of the project, and in a manner that addresses the public interest.
The following are some of the services I provide, working on my own or in collaboration with a larger team:
Land use policy formulation and review
Development analysis and related reports
Master plan preparation and review
Public consultation, engagement and facilitation
Conference and seminar organization
Research, including best practices in governance, transit, and community development
Formulation and management of requests for proposals
Preparation of implementation guidelines
I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate professionally with Sean Hertel on numerous occasions over the last ten years. Aside from being an insightful planner with a deep understanding of the foundational elements of his profession, his unique ability to clearly communicate those insights has directly led to the success of many projects on which he’s worked.

Sean is a brilliant and creative thinker who is always looking to push the envelope in terms of ideas and solutions to complex problems. He is skilled at communicating both orally and in writing, while providing his insights in a creative and easy to understand way. He has a keen sense of the interplay between city planning and the liveability of our communities.
