WordCamp Montréal is a two day conference about WordPress, the world’s most popular blogging and CMS software. Developers, designers, web professionals, and bloggers will come together for WordPress-related talks, workshops, and networking in both French and English.

This year, the event will be held in the modern and accessible John Molson School of Business in downtown Montréal. If you’re coming from out of town, you’re in for a treat. Summertime is when the city comes to life with street fairs, festivals, and outdoor shows.

I support things like making the web accessible for everyone, using open source software, helping organizations find greener more sustainable ways to operate through online technology and helping non-profits with online community organizing.

I create clean, minimalist designs, that adhere to web standards. My favourite tools include ExpressionEngine and WordPress

My web design studio also provides e-commerce development, search engine optimization, email marketing, social media integration and branding. 

I help organize WordCamp Montreal, and I'm a member of the following groups:
