||Walton was born in Beijing, China, and grew up in Toronto, Canada. He studied engineering at the University of Waterloo and then architecture at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. While at UBC, he participated in a studies abroad program in Cairo, where he first met Dr. Weeks. Invited by Dr. Weeks to return to Egypt, Walton joined the TMP in 1996. As project architect he conducted surveys of the Valley and the Theban memorial temples, and designed the maps and architectural line drawings in the Atlas of the Valley of the Kings. He worked on the original KV5.com site and the CD-ROM project that subsequently evolved into this current TMP website. In addition, he designed the KV5 Preliminary Report and the tourist signage in use at the Valley.
In 1999 Walton returned to architectural practice, first in London, and now with a firm in Toronto. He continues to work with the TMP, coming out to document the new chambers being discovered in KV5 and consulting on the TMP's efforts to develop tourist infrastructure and a heritage masterplan for the Valley.
