As a Senior Associate at ERA, David provides leadership across teams and is actively involved in all aspects of the diverse practice including: design and architectural services, office and studio management, mentoring, research, scholarship and writing. Prior to ERA, David served for over a decade as a Senior Associate at Robert A.M. Stern Architects (RAMSA) in New York where he worked on various complex, high budget multifamily residential, single family residential and commercial projects.
Due to his keen interest in the preservation and improvement of the public realm he founded the Friends of Allan Gardens in 1999, a group formed to advocate for the park and the restoration of the Palmhouse and grounds of one of Toronto’s oldest parks, and on whose board of directors he currently serves.
David received his Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Toronto and his Master of Architecture degree from McGill University. He is a registered architect in Ontario, New York State and a member of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada. He continues his research on early 20th century Canadian architecture and architects, and hopes to foster a greater appreciation for the fascinating story of the evolution of architecture in Toronto.
