Fabrication Lead


I attended high school in rural Quebec where I discovered a love of chemistry while taking 3 years of electronics classes in order to avoid a Canadian History class. In college I found chemical engineering painfully boring, switched to Biochemistry, and took Bioengineering classes for fun. My first grown up job was in a plant physiology lab working on somatic embryogenesis in Alfalfa. I have worked in IT as a certified systems engineer, as a technician in a semiconductor lab, and as a technologist in an optoelectronics research lab. At the latest fork in my career path it was a toss up between welding and shoeing horses. I chose welding because I love making things. My back thanks me daily.


What’s your biggest pet peeve?
People assuming that I like country music based on the fact that I ride horses and wear cowboy boots. Nothing could be father from the truth.

My favorite is ``The Hunt for Red October``, however I watch ``Galaxy Quest`` more often.
What kind of music do you listen to?
Progressive rock and select classical, thanks to Saturday mornings spent watching Bugs Bunny.
What would a “perfect” day look like for you?
Any day spent exploring new trails on horseback with family and friends.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?
New Zealand. To ride where ``The Lord of the Rings`` was shot.
Best concert ever attended?
Supertramp at the Montreal Forum on their 'Famous Last Words' tour.
