From 2000-2013, I was the architecture critic and City Space columnist for The Globe and Mail. Now I’ve been appointed a senior fellow at University of Toronto’s Global Cities Institute. A mom, wife, daughter and sister. A community leader, artist and writer (between loads of laundry.) I believe in love and sharing. And that beauty can help heal the world. Latest joy: writing my historic novel during a ten-month sabbatical while living in a villa overlooking the rice paddies of Ubud, Bali. My youngest son was attending the Green School, a bamboo cathedral set in the Balinese jungle.
