In 2016 I had the privilege of visiting Cuba with the 24 other delegates from the Anglican Church of Canada, and 25 delegates from the Episcopal Diocese of Cuba. Together we visited various projects funded or partially funded by the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund, and participate in sessions where we learned about the history of Cuba, and the economic, social, and food security situation there today. These photos were taken in Matanzas and Havana.
San Antonio, 2016
The Lucile Halsell Conservatory at the San Antonio Botanical Gardens was designed by architect Emilio Ambasz in the late 80s. Ambasz's buildings typically pair modernist concrete architecture with lush greenery: two of my favourite things at once. You can imagine how smitten I was.
I visited Sarajevo in the autumn of 2014, just missing commemorations of the beginning of the First World War but catching the tail end of a federal election. For many, the name "Sarajevo" evokes images the brutal war in the 1990s, and although signs of this conflict are unavoidable, Sarajevo remains a warm and beautiful city. Whenever people ask me what Sarajevo is like, I tell them they should visit and find out for themselves!
Science at CMU
These are a selection of images highlighting Canadian Mennonite University's science programs from my work in the communications department there. Students at CMU benefit from small class sizes and plentiful one-on-one time with engaged, highly qualified professors. Also, guts.
