A graduate from the School of Community and Regional Planning at UBC, Kevin has seven years of experience working at DIALOG. Complementing his consulting practice, Kevin worked for 3 years as a Senior Planner – Urban Design in the Development Services Division at the City of Victoria.
Kevin’s experience in urban design strengthens his planning work, providing an awareness and understanding of core design issues and project complexities while not losing sight of the importance of stakeholder input and community perspectives. Kevin’s project experience is broad and includes master plans, facility planning, design guideline development, site planning, rezoning applications, downtown revitalization plans, and streetscape improvement projects. Kevin has recently led large-scale master planning projects such as the Capri Centre Rezoning, the transformation of a 19-acre shopping centre in Kelowna into a transit-oriented and mixed-use development. Kevin has also participated in and organized numerous design charrettes and organized the Great Northern Way Campus Master Plan Charrette and the UBC Farm Charrette.
In Victoria, Kevin managed large scale, high profile projects such as the rezoning for the Royal British Columbia Museum. He also led the development of the Garden Suite Policy, including all aspects related to public consultation.
