My name is Ross McKinnon and I am a Master of Architecture student at the Boston Architectural College. I am originally from Calgary, Alberta but have since moved to Boston to further pursue my passion for Architecture & Urban Planning. I have a wide range of experience, but what I enjoy most is the Sports & Recreation sector as well as following the construction of any project.
