Cam is a professional planner, urban designer, and development manager. He has practiced in both urban and rural settings across Canada on projects ranging from master-planned communities and big city high-rises to rural strategic and official plans.

He grew up working in the fruit orchards and vineyards of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario – a setting which confirmed how utterly useless a farmer he was but which also piqued his interest in urban planning, architecture, culturally significant landscapes, built heritage, tourism planning, sustainability, and design.

He takes his readers into the closed-door meetings of the planning and political bureaucracy and writes about corruption in land development and municipal politics.
