Additionally, Ian has been mentored by well-known architects and developers who have informed his own path. Ian has spent time with his family in England at Cambridge and the esteemed Architecture Association. Locally, he worked for F. Branscombe.

Over the years, Ian has been involved in the development of the A. and P. in St. Catharines and Gales Gas Bars. He shared his work with the Centre Manu Vie in Montreal as well as the Suomi-Koti Seniors housing in Toronto and Momiji in Scarborough. In St. Catharines, Ian has been involved in the Faith Lutheran Villa and the Good Shepherd Villa.

As Ian is a part owner of a British firm, he spend considerable time still in Cambridge where he attend the Rotary Club of Cambridge, Rutherford which meets in beautiful venues. Ian is the author of numerous books on architecture and is currently Chair of the OAA Perspectives and writes for the “The Right Angle” architecture magazines.
