Always an outdoor enthusiast, Gordon entered the Landscape Architecture Program at University of Toronto wanting to discover how we can better immerse ourselves with the natural environment. How can we integrate how we live with the environment in which we live? It is a question he has spent his career exploring.

Upon graduation Gordon entered the Masters of Architecture program at the University of Manitoba. In the nearly 30 years since graduation, integrating the answers to that question into his work has been his top priority. 

Gordon's professional practice encompasses a wide range of private and public experiences as an architect, landscape architect, and project manager. His projects have spanned the budget range from a few hundred dollars to millions of dollars  - working alone, as a team member, and as the leader of a multi-disciplinary team.

Gordon is past president of the Atlantic Provinces Association of Landscape Architects, a component of the Canadian Landscape Architects (CSLA), and has served as the Atlantic representative on the national board. He has twice served on jury for the CSLA National Design Awards of Excellence, and is currently a member of the Charlottetown Design Review Committee.

Outside of work, Gordon is an avid runner and swimmer, and enjoys a wide variety of outdoor activities including hiking, paddle boarding, and travel. When not at his desk, he is probably taking one or all of his three collies on a hike around the Northwest Trail.
