I am a 26 year old designer, entrepreneur, student, and podcaster. I live in the Plateau area of Montréal, where I frequent far too many web cafés. Montréal is also the city where I was brought up and have lived my entire life.

I have been podcasting since November of 2004. I am one of the first podcasters in Canada, and definitely the first in Quebec and Montreal. My podcast started on a whim, to connect with people through this new medium as it developed. As it expanded, the world of podcasting as a medium quickly enveloped me. I found myself devoting a great deal of time and energy to learning about the broadcasting medium, and now focus a majority of my work hours on podcasting, blogging, and their related mediums, both as a consultant for companies and for myself. My work has been written up in Hour magazine, La Presse, the Montreal Gazette, the CBC, among other publications.

July 2005 ::: Signed on to work with Podshow, a startup founded by ‘Podfather’ Adam Curry and Ron Bloom. Along with a few other music shows, I am the face of the Podsafe Music Network, a tool which connects podcasters with musicians from all over the world.

My expertise with podcasting and other new media projects has allowed me to aid a variety of individuals, organizations, and companies to develop forward thinking solutions to traditional marketing problems. Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.
