His passion for inclusive design began with policy research as it pertains to Toronto’s food economy. His experience working as a surveyor, researcher and analyst provided exposure to the visible barriers to access in the built environment and to the invisible barriers of access contained within social economic relations. Daniel’s background in urban planning provides a secondary perspective in understanding how the built environment affects how people of varying ability and perception have access to and navigate their surroundings.
