My “Virtual Portfolio”
In response to an overwhelming torrent of requests (sarcasm alert!), I thought I would post links to some of my published freelance writing over the past few years.
Most recently, I wrote a piece for the travel section of the Calgary Herald, about our family’s trip to Colombia. The story was picked up by a number of other media outlets as well. It seems to have disappeared from the Herald website, but here it is from the Montreal Gazette.
A few years ago, I did some writing or architecture and urbanism for FFWD, the alternative weekly here in Calgary. (I did graduate study in City & Regional Planning at the University of California, Berkeley and Architectural History/Theory at Cornell University. Unfortunately, I never did get a piece of paper from either institution, but I still learned a lot about those subjects–areas which continue to fascinate me!)
Anyway, I wrote for FFWD about “misunderstood Modernism“, “Creating a Vision For Calgary’s Future“, “What’s Wrong With New Urbanism (part 1)” and “part 2“, “James Kunstler Comes to Town“, “Norman Foster Comes to Town“, and “Challenging Assumptions About Sprawl“.
And there you have it–my virtual portfolio of published writing from the past few years.
