What’s your favourite DIALOG project?
Edmonton Brewery District is my favourite because I saw it from rezoning through to construction completion. And it’s in my neighbourhood, so now I get to see how people are using and enjoying the space.

Where’s your happy place?
The family cabin at Wizard Lake, Alberta.
