Sainte-Adèle Quebec

In the first chapter of my professional life, I started on the musical scene as a bass player for the young Patrick Bourgeois, who would later have a huge success with his group 'Les B.B.'. Subsequently, I migrated to the role of solo guitarist, singer, producer and director of independent and underground music in Quebec. I notably worked with producer Glen Robinson and artist and impresario Jane McGarrigle.

In the second chapter of my professional life, I branched off towards communications, sustainable development and politics. I worked as the director of communications for an engineering firm in sustainable development, I chair the Deux-Montagnes Citizens Committee for several years, sit on the board of directors and executive of Rivers Foundation, of Québec Vert Kyoto, and participate as a candidate for the Green Party of Canada in three federal elections.

After this career reorientation which added several skills to my professional curriculum, I completed a Bachelor of Professional Studies in Songwriting (Magna Cum Laude) and a Certificate in Guitar at the renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston, graduating in 2018. Since, my creative process has been closely linked to my life and a cause dear to me, that of raising awareness against sexual violence and get involved for victim's rights. I am proud to share my journey while perfecting my art and at the same time to bring something restorative to communities.
