Skills

My areas of expertise are visual and personal communication.  I have a facility for communicating effectively with people and for making complex issues easy and non threatening for people who are unfamiliar with that field. I specialize in creating polished human interfaces by being an ombudsman between technically complex issues and the need to make it simple and attractive to potential customers. 

I am fluent in English and French.  I surf, bike and hike.
