Focusing on transportation planning, public engagement, urban planning, and project management, Stephen aims to create great cities that serve everyone. He believes the public good involves everyone and providing the opportunity for contribution through meaningful stakeholder engagement creates enthusiasm, energy, and connections needed for great public spaces.
In completing his master of planning at the University of Waterloo, Stephen focused his research on the interaction between transit and walkability—aligning with his interest in promoting more efficient movement in cities. Stephen has worked on a variety of multimodal and transit projects across Canada and the United States, including in Hamilton, Ottawa, Boston, Winnipeg, and Calgary.
Outside of Stantec, Stephen has 20 years of experience with the Canadian Armed Forces, currently as an infantry reservist. In this role, he is a trained specialist in marketing and communications, along with the ongoing management of 40 soldiers in regular training.
