An urban geographer and advocate for pedestrian-scale development, I am curious about the connections between urban form, perception and experience of place, and how these influence movement through cities.

With a keen interest in psychogeography and memory maps, I created Pedestrian City as a way to explore these topics further, beginning with a study of a Toronto neighbourhood. Inspired by the work of Michel De Certeau, Guy Debord and the Situationist International, Jane Jacobs, and Jan Gehl, Pedestrian City brings together individual experiences of walking in a city.
I am also one of the creators of the Gramorail, a pedal-powered railcar built in partnership with eatART and the Vancouver Design Nerds.
