Matt has a background in planning, community development, and resource and environmental management. He recently completed his Masters’ thesis which examined the behaviour of recreational users in response to changing environmental conditions and regulations. Matt looks forward to applying his knowledge in this area to the creation of distinctive mountain and recreation master plans.
Through his studies, Matt has had the opportunity to work on tourism development and management projects in Paraguay, Tanzania and Clayoquot Sound, BC. He brings a diverse set of skills to BHA, including environmental, climate, market and industry analysis, report production, geographic information systems, stakeholder consultation and facilitation.
When not in the office Matt can be found in the mountains, biking or running along single track, or splitboarding in the Sea to Sky region’s amazing backcountry.

An avid snowboarder, Christine also enjoys exploring the mountain on skis. In the summer, she is focused on cross-country and downhill mountain biking, paddle boarding, hiking and going on outdoor adventures.
Christine also enjoys travelling back to Quebec where she can reconnect with her French-Canadian culture.
Our office is located in one of the World’s recreation capitals – Whistler, BC. From our offices we explore, examine, and live in this mountain recreation ‘test tube’, continually analyzing what works and what doesn’t, and developing innovative design and planning solutions.
