Co-founder & former host of CreativeMornings/Montréal. If we can't change the world, we'll at least make a dent. Spent ten years as a political strategist & diplomat, a.k.a typing monkey & professional handshaker. Sometimes does stüff just for the heck of bringing people together so that the cool people can meet all the cool people – for example, Fuckup Nights. Also member of the Board of Directors at Institut du Nouveau Monde, because civic engagement & citizen participation matter -- big time -- for this agnostic political omnivore. Also joined the Board of Travelling, a short film distribution joint based in Trois-Rivières that makes Québec's best short filmmakers shine around the world. And the Board of the Fondation du Centre des auteurs dramatiques, dedicated to supporting French-language playwrights in Canada. Speaking of plays, he gets on stage every year to raise funds for the Centre du Théâtre d'Aujourd'hui. Other philanthropic endeavours help support young business students through the Club des 100 at HEC Montréal and projects in Haïti. Originally a linguist with a dash of physics, still a polyglot, word-juggler & stickler for exactitude. We can speak French, English, Spanish, Portuguese or German, in any particular order, or draw Japanese & Arabic characters. Otherwise there's always music. But play fucking loud, seriously.

We are in the process of taking back our streets. The street is crucial because it is the first incarnation of our shared space. Everything happens on the street. We always have to go down to the street.
In a city, stories are important. Anecdotes, urban legends are important.
