PROFESSIONAL PROFILE

Passionate about the entertainment industry and technology in all its forms, my professional skills extend to four main disciplines: Technical Conception, Graphic Design, Software Development and Project Management. With over 20 years of experience, in which six were acquired at Cirque du Soleil, I have participated in projects that span from small to large scale. One of my strongest strengths is the ability to develop elegant and economical solutions to problems. I am able to work well on my own initiative, and demonstrate the high levels of motivation required to meet the tightest of deadlines under pressure.
