As a passionate advocate for Strong Towns principles, I've dedicated my efforts to understanding and promoting sustainable community development. I believe that fostering resilient, people-centered neighborhoods is key to building a brighter future for our community in Langley.

You might have come across me in various Facebook community groups or seen my tweets on Twitter, where I actively engage in conversations about local advocacy and issues that matter most to our community.
