I always welcome a challenge.
I’m passionate about development in all its shapes and forms. Creating, building and seeing the results of my work motivate me. The projects I undertake contribute to the greater good or to the autonomy and value of a community. Entrepreneur at heart, I’ve been working on the creation and management of large-scale projects for the past twelve years, many of which require raising capital and spearheading business strategies and partnerships. And before that? I spent five years working in provincial politics.
I’ve been to 30 countries around the world, on five continents, and I’m still counting. I love to see and experience what’s going on elsewhere. Innovation inspires me to think about how I can create something new to better my projects, my city, my country.
Urban planning and transportation systems fascinate me. I love getting around by train in Europe. We need to build a better network of high-speed trains connecting our larger cities in Eastern Canada.
Creating concepts comes easy to me.
I’m passionate about creativity and communication: emotions – conveyed through words, expressions and images – create connections. This is the basis on which my marketing brain operates.
I’ve acquired over twelve years of experience in marketing and communications. I’ve spearheaded brand management and strategy projects and I’ve worked on the conceptualization and production of print and web materials and produced events in the private, public and co-operative sectors. The projects I undertake are learning experiences and challenging.
I will always travel to new places. The unknown pushes me to question and appreciate the world around me, my own ideas and myself. Thirty countries with the ambition to keep discovering.
I love when art has the power to call upon even those that say they don’t get it. For example, I am struck by the history behind the construction of the Guggenheim Bilbao contemporary art museum and how it reinvented the city.
