How I landed in ACP

Following the first lockdown in 2020 that I spent in Quebec despite having started a contract for a job in Paris in January of the same year, I finally returned to Paris on June 14. I decided to network to meet new people and take advantage of the chance I had of being in an amazing job in one of the most beautiful cities in the world with new friends. I contacted the ACP and Marilène Garceau welcomed and invited me to participate in the feast of St. John as well as Canada Day. These two parties allowed me to make great friendships and also convinced me to join the ACP in order to meet more people and participate in activities, each one more interesting than the last.

What I do for a living

I am a specialist in the organization of international sporting events and at the moment I am Senior Sport Cluster Manager for the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris. What does a Senior Sport Cluster Manager do? I am responsible for the 24 sports that will take place in the center of Paris on iconic sites such as La Concorde, the Eiffel Tower, the Grand Palais or the Invalides. An incredible job!  “Un job de ouf” as we would say it here!

My favorite place in France or Canada

A small village by the sea (Petite-Rivière-Saint-François, QC / Collioure, FRA) or mountain hikes and it doesn't matter in which country.

My hidden talent

I am excellent at learning the history of the places I visit and retelling it to the friends I travel with. I sincerely believe that I would be a tourist guide if I was in a different career than the one I have right now.

What I learned in life

You only die once, but you live every day. It's up to me to make the most of it.
