Dave LeBlanc was born in Toronto and wouldn't have it any other way. At age 8, he remembers jumping for joy when both the CN Tower opened and Toronto finally snatched Montreal's crown to become the biggest city in Canada; he's been an architecture lover and Toronto advocate ever since.
He attended Ryerson for Radio-Television Arts and York University for English. His radio career has included stints at CJEZ, CJAD in Montreal and CFRB, where he currently works (and sometimes speaks about architecture on-air). His budding life as a newspaper writer began in 1997 at the Montreal Gazette and flowered fully with the Globe & Mail in 2003. Since 2004 he has written weekly as "The Architourist" for Globe Real Estate. His work has also appeared in The Toronto Star, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Concrete Toronto (Coach House, 2007) and international architecture magazines. He has served as a juror for the Ontario Association of Architects and Heritage Toronto.
He lives downtown in a 1920s condominium with his wife and cat.
