What are you reading?
I enjoy reading business magazines like Inc. and the last book I read was How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie. It was written in 1936, but it’s still relevant today. It’s timeless.
What famous people in history do you most admire?
Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jr,, Mother Theresa—people who influenced millions of others and who made the world a better place. Also, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, who were passionate about their ideas, executed them in the best possible way and have a philanthropic approach to business.
What would people be surprised to know about you?
That I’m very easygoing, but I like to get things done in a timely manner. I’m also a real geek. I love TED Talks, documentaries, artificial intelligence and computer science. I just started learning how to code, just for myself.
If you could hire anyone, who would it be?
A growth hacker and a financial genius.
What is your motto?
Trust your gut, think outside of the box and always remember there’s never only one solution to a problem. Great things are done by a series of smaller things brought together.
What is your favorite hometown memory?
When the summer arrived in Montr éal, I used to love going to Mont Royal Mountain on a Sunday during Tam-Tam (a drum circle) and just sit in the grass and stare at the crowd.
