Jonathan sees the big picture. Whether he’s looking at Edmonton’s ever-changing landscape from the city’s revolving rooftop restaurant, or the way the new downtown arena will impact the city centre’s communities—Jonathan sees the opportunities and potential, not just what’s directly at hand.
He likes challenging projects that push the limits, call for the best in people, and bring them together over a shared sense of purpose. His microbiology background, coupled with his leadership experience in multi-stakeholder engagement initiatives, allows him to convey technical concepts in a way that’s interactive and easily understood. Jonathan was part of the engagement team for the Lower Athabasca Regional Plan, a project that will set new precedents and standards, and leave the province in a better state for future generations. It’s one of many visionary projects that’s right up Jonathan’s alley.
