About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Discover the world by motorcycle!

ABOUT ME

My dad is from Quebec and my mom is from France so I saw quite a bit of Europe and got the traveling bug early. Despite the "seriousness" of my career choice, I'm a pretty down to earth guy who can enjoy himself in most situations. Big fan of traveling of course, but also a fan of motorcycling, sports (hockey, rugby), beers, scotch, food/cooking.....

Love to take my time and "enjoy the moment". Kinda cliché I know, but it explains the motorcycling thing.

Big music lover. All music... there's just some I know more than others. Being a drummer, rock and metal are up there in my favorites but classical, blues, jazz, rap are there too.

PHILOSOPHY

Shit happens, deal with it!
Listen to the kid inside!
Laughing is the best medicine.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I saw the blossoming of the Sakura (cherry blossoms) in Japan and the fascination the Japanese have for this marvel of nature.

I saw Ozzy Osbourne, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Black Label Society, Megadeth, Dream Theater, Korn, Velvet Revolver, Slayer and Motorhead in 2 days in the Netherlands... I just needed Metallica and it would have been just perfect.

I went to have a few beers at the Delirium Cafe in Brussels, the bar with the Guiness world record for the biggest beer menu: over 2000!!! (I tried to taste them all but I will definitely have to come back!)

Rented a Harley road king and had an amazing ride in the San Jacinto state park and Joshua Tree national park.

Rode a motorcycle from Montreal to San Cristobal de las casas in Mexico and back.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am a drummer but with a good all around knowledge in music and most genres.
I ride motorcycles on and off road.
I could talk hours about hockey... but knowing that I travel outside of Canada, I can talk about other sports too (but hockey is awesome... really)
... Oh and I know a thing or two about medicine
I speak French and English fluently and need a whole lot of practice with my Spanish and Japanese.
