I’m Chris. I live in Toronto and work as the founder of August, a boutique agency that designs and builds digital products and hosts a regular speaker series (or did, pre-covid).

I’m very interested in projects that move atoms and bits– the larger and more impactful, the better. I’d like to use this website as a repository for thoughts I have on state capacity as it relates to megaproject management, with a particular focus on Toronto infrastructure, including digital infrastructure.

In 2017, I launched Housing Matters, a YIMBY advocacy group, to advance the cause of land use liberalization in Toronto. The high and rising cost of urban housing is an underrated problem, and regulatory land use constraints are mostly to blame. I talk about that on this podcast.
