Tell us about yourself !

I am from the south shore of Montreal-Beloeil, a small town close to the St-Hilaire Mountain.

I graduated from Sherbrooke University in Business administration. I like to practice sports.  I play tennis, bicycling and jogging. I also like reading.

What was the craziest thing that has ever happened to you while traveling?

When I traveled to Atlantic City, at the beginning of my trip, I lost my wallet (cash, ID cards, C/C…) and my car keys. After realizing it was missing, I went back inside to the slot machine where I had left my wallet last, and to the security desk, but nothing!  After a stressful hour, I went back and found out a client/tourist had brought it back with everything inside, no money was missing! There are still honest people in the world (in Atlantic City anyway!)
