Associate Forester

MSFM, RPF, ISA Certified Arborist

Conor is a Forest Professional with over a decade of experience in wildfire operations and mitigation. Raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Conor began his wildfire career in the Initial Attack program, eventually leading a crew for three years. He experienced firsthand the impacts of wildfire in interface communities when he participated in the suppression efforts at the Fort McMurray wildfire in 2016.

Conor’s experience and passion for wildfire inspired him to obtain a Masters Degree in Forestry from the University of British Columbia in 2017, where he focused on community wildfire risk mitigation for a small community in BC's interior.

Conor joined Frontera in 2024 after working for several years as an urban forestry consultant, focusing on mitigating wildfire risk in communities and interface developments. He works with communities and clients to develop pragmatic solutions to wildfire challenges, and integrating wildfire resilience initiatives into their normal business and planning activities.

Conor focuses on community engagement and education, distilling the complex relationship between human communities and wildfire into messages that can be understanded by all. Conor’s particular areas of interest are weather and wildfire danger forecasting, wildfire and community planning, and wildfire planning for indigenous communities.

In his spare time, you will find Conor mountain biking on the trails of North Vancouver, backcountry ski touring, or repairing his frequently broken down truck.
