As an Associate at ERA, David provides senior leadership 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 was a Project Manager and Project Architect at Robert A.M. Stern Architects in New York City 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 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 the State of New York, a LEED Accredited Professional, and a member of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada. He is eager to further this research and hopes to foster a greater appreciation for the fascinating story of the evolution of architecture in Toronto.
