Favourite Place on Campus

My office is warmly decorated and inviting to students who drop by. I enjoy interacting with our students and getting to know them and their aspirations beyond Tyndale.

Favourite Place in Toronto

My favorite place in Toronto is actually not in Toronto, but a farm in Ancaster where I stable my horse. I have always loved trail riding, and the farm is adjacent to the Dundas Valley with lovely walking and equestrian trails.
