Tell us about yourself !

I’m born and raised in Montreal. I graduated in Political Science from Concordia University in Montreal. I focused a lot of my degree on Middle Eastern Politics, International Relations, and American Politics. I would consider myself somewhat of a political and information junkie.

I’m a big sports fan! I mainly follow the NFL, the English Premier league, and Formula 1. I also enjoy playing Fantasy Sports, I play in a few NFL Fantasy sports leagues and I run a fantasy EPL league.

Some of my favourite Sport teams are: the Baltimore Ravens, Chelsea FC, Bayern München, Scuderia Ferrari, and the Montreal Canadians.

I also love food and cats.

What are the top destinations you’ve visited and which was your favourite?

Some of my favourite destinations that I have visited are: Nicaragua, Lebanon, Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, Berlin, and Washington DC.

What was your best travel experience?

My best travel experience is when I visited Lebanon. This was the first time I visited the Middle East. Lebanon offers a great modern and traditional experience of the region.

What destinations are on your bucket list and why?

For me, one of the most important aspects of traveling is to experience a new culture and for it to take you out of your comfort zone. This why Argentina, Japan, Russia, and Iran are on the top of my bucket list.

Which Prometour Tour would you travel on?

I would love to do one of the Peru trips.

What was your first trip?

My first major trip is when I traveled with my family to Cuba. Seeing Havana was the first time I experienced a different culture and way of life.
