About, updated

The other About page is totally true but it’s old. I left full-time work in 2008 and at first the plan was to just take care of the kids and get back to the career (urban planning) later. That’s shifted: I’ve been doing freelance consulting from home (it really got rolling here).  It’s a much better balance kid-wise but comes with a whole host of other challenges like the ‘feast or famine’ reality of consulting.

For me, the ideal balance would be to have enough consulting work that I could be busy six hours a day from Monday to Friday. Kids in school = me working. Kids out of school = me not working. These jobs don’t exist so I’m trying to make one. This is my first year with both kids in school so that I can really focus on work again. So if any of you out in blog-land need a minor variance from a zoning bylaw or a touch of regional growth management policy analysis just leave it in the comments and I’ll get right on it.
