A former engineer and patent attorney from France, upon arriving in Canada I had to start at the bottom and have steadily worked my way up professionally. I have worked with leading edge organizations such as Theatre francais de Toronto, The Canadian Race Relations Foundation, The Art Gallery of Ontario, The Royal Ontario Museum and The Ontario Science Centre, serving very diverse communities always connected in one way or another to education. Today I am a Master of Public Service Candidate at the University of Waterloo and French Programs Manager at the Ontario Justice Education Network. My wife Lauren and I were recently blessed with an amazing daughter, Amélie. My core values are honesty, empathy, audacity, care, and respect. My political vision is focused on speaking truth to power to serve youth, parents and communities.
