Creative Director – Road Rug Cars



Crazy about motor sport, I would have liked to be a professional pilot. But I have developed another passion, finance, that drove my studies. I graduated with a Bachelor of business administration specialized on accounting and finance from HEC Montreal, I spent a semester at the University of Technology in Sydney and I graduated with a HEC Montreal DESS professional accounting. Since, I spent 6 month as staff accountant at Ernst & Young (yes I am a rookie), and 1 year as media creative director for Road Rug Cars.

More details about me on Linkedin and about Road Rug Cars.
