Hola,

My educational background is in Business Administration, Events Planning & Management.  I have worked major events including The Canadian Breast Cancer Run For the Cure, The Bay Street Rat Race, First Night Toronto and various conventions.

I have lived in Corktown, Toronto since the 1980s.  It is the home to many historic landmarks which includes, but is not limited to: St. Paul’s Basilica  (Toronto’s first Roman Catholic Church); Trinity Church (known as Little Trinity – one of Toronto’s oldest standing buildings); Enoch Turner Schoolhouse; The Consumer’s Gas Buildings on Parliament Street; The Thornton Blackburn site; historic Riverside Church and many more.

Heritage Preservation…
My interest in local history, especially that of Corktown and Toronto’s Old Town Historic District, has led me to acquire a diploma in: Records & Archives Management.  Other studies also include Photography, taken a the Ontario College of Art, Toronto. In addition, my research skills and knowledge of archives’ holdings has allowed me to work for individuals and companies in the area of genealogical research.

Heritage Exhibits
Between 2000 and 2005 I curated a number of family history exhibits. To celebrate Toronto’s Pan Am and Parapan Games 2015 a collection of my photographs, that document the Town of Corozal, were displayed at Preservation House.
