My name is Adrian Crook, a dad of five who lives in beautiful downtown Vancouver, Canada.

I started 5Kids1Condo to share the unique benefits of raising children in an urban environment. I’m passionate about creating strong family bonds, achieving life/work balance, and living sustainably.

My five children and I live in a 1000 square foot condo in Vancouver’s Yaletown district. Every day we make conscious decisions about how to live big but leave a small footprint.

Being car-free, we’re more likely to opt for active transportation modes – like biking.

We don’t own a car, bus to and from school, and walk up to 10 kilometres a day as a family. We’re minimalists, meaning we prefer to spend our time and money doing things, rather than buying things.

I’m always open to collaborating with others whose values align with mine. Give me a shout if you’d like to work with me.

Hopefully you’ll enjoy what I’ve written, maybe find it useful and leave a comment.

Talk soon,
