About me

I am a French Canadian working as a civil engineer for the Government of Canada. I also have education and training in computer science and humanitarian assistance and response. I am involved with different charities including the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul, my local Catholic parish and the Knights of Columbus. I have managed several pro bono construction projects for different organizations that rely solely on donations such as Habitat for Humanity, youth centres, SPCA and food banks. I am a big fan of metal music. I speak English and French. I currently live in the Canadian National Capital Region.

My involvement in the Wikimedia movement

I joined the French Wikipedia in 2006. I have contributed and contribute to other French projects including Wiktionary, Wikiquote, Wikinews, Wikiversity and Wikivoyage as well as Wikimedia Commons, Meta-Wiki and Wikidata. I am the main author of several good articles on French Wikipedia and Wikivoyage. In fact, I wrote the very first good article of French Wikivoyage and created the first good topic on a Canadian subject on French Wikipedia. I am an administrator on different projects and I have been a steward in the past.

I am involved with the Wikipedias in North American Aboriginal languages. I have created several test-Wikipedias in Native languages in the Wikimedia Incubator. I am the founder of the Canadian Aboriginal Languages Wikipedia Coordination group and Wikimedia Indigenous Languages. I have developed the strategic plan of Wikimedia Canada for the outreach to Canadian Aboriginal communities.

I participated to the Wikimanias in Hong Kong in 2013 and in Mexico City in 2015, to the Wikimedia Conference in Berlin in 2016 as well as to the first French WikiConvention in Paris in 2016.

Currently, I am the Vice President of Wikimedia Canada since September 2016. I am involved with the project Atikamekw knowledge, culture and language in Wikimedia projects. I am planning to organize the first edition of Wiki Loves Earth in Canada in 2017.

I gave an interview to Wikimedia France about Wikivoyage: [1] (in French only).
