Making life easier for bus travelers worldwide @Busbud. Dance choreographer and Swing DJ @Cat's Corner. Freelance event and corporate videography.
Introduction
I'm currently the director of communications at Busbud.com, a community for bus travelers. My previous startup adventures are Akoha, a community focused on making a positive difference in the world, Standout Jobs, a social recruiting platform, and Wajam, innovating in social search.

I'm also a dance teacher, choreographer and DJ at Cat's Corner, and have had the privilege to teach and DJ in many cities across the world. I'm a co-founder of Montreal Swing Riot.

In 2008, I rode my bike from Vancouver to Mexico to raise awareness for microcredit. If you've never heard of microcredit or microloans, I highly encourage you to read Banker to the Poor by Nobel prize winner Muhammad Yunus.

I'm an avid photographer and videographer, and my Youtube videos have received over 4 million views. I'm probably most famous for being the thumbnail and swinging out in the Gmail: Behind The Scenes viral video, viewed by over 5 million people.
