About Me
I live in the Suburbs of Montreal, Canada. I am a Mechanical Engineer by trade but now work in IT/Computers for a very large corporation. I traveled a lot, lived in France for 5 years, also in Labrador, up north, for almost as long! I go to the USA frequently, summer home there.

BTW did I told you I was french-speaking??? :^)
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
I love skiing, camping, biking and travelling. I read a lot, mainly historical, military and scientific books. As for music I like pretty much everything but hard rock and the like; my choices do tend to be a bit eclectic. Very old music always strikes a chord.

Movies? I am VERY choosy. Anything Historical/Military, but I have a lasting fancy about Gwinneth Paltrow. :-P

Have you been down to the World Boardgaming Championships yet? We get several groups who make the drive down. You mentioned you had been to Belize. Do you travel much? Where else do you recommend? I'll look you up when I'm trying to find another game of HIS PBeM.
