About Me


To travel, learn, attempt to make inspiring indymedia, and be inspired myself


I am a native Montrealer, anglophone, but speak fluent French. I like to travel and record audio for radio documentaries. I try to follow current events and politics, and never shy away from a good discussion. Self-motivated, explorer, thirsty for knowledge.

I am sometimes a university student, but more often than not I am organizing for social justice. Call me an activist if you will.

I love all types of food, and usually cook vegetarian.

I love music, and I love to dance.


I try to live my life on anarchist principles: mutual aid, cooperation, equality, respect, tolerance, ecological and social well-being.
