Software Engineer &
Linux System Administrator

Hello There! I'm a professional engineer and a member of the OIQ "Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec". Since graduating in 2008 I have been working on all sorts of software projects, and I also founded my own company in 2010 that provides web and software solutions. Also, in 2011 I became a certified Linux System Administrator from Red Hat.

Feel Free to check out my work or view my resume, and also please note that not all of my projects are online as they are private to either my employer or customers, but I describe a few of them here.

I would love to hear from you so don't hesitate to contact me!
