Personal interests in conservation:
My interest in conservation started with a love of landscaping at a young age. I appreciated greening and the benefits that it had to a community while working summers at the Niagara Parks Commission in my youth. Throughout my years, I have shared my appreciation with my family, as we have traveled throughout Canada, coast to coast, enjoying the outdoors and natural areas. My children often joke that I'm the only dad they know who has a bird-bath heater for feathered visitors to our yard in the winter.
I continue to be passionate about expanding the trail network in Niagara Falls with a goal to complete the North/ South connection by adding at least one section per year. Additionally, I am an avid supporter of our work with CN Eco Connections and plantings and advocacy through our Park in the City Committee in Niagara Falls. A major ecological step during my time at City Hall was achieved in advancing our partnership with Coyote Watch Canada, a humanitarian organization that we work closely with to help our residents coexist not only with coyotes, but with wildlife throughout our community.
