I work for CBC/Radio-Canada, the Canadian Broadcasting Company, as Senior Data Producer, interactive content and visualizations. I am based in Montreal.

My primary mandate is to publish exclusive data-driven stories in innovative forms. I code in R, Python, JavaScript and WebGL, which allows me to gather, process, analyze and visualize big volumes of data.

I created and I maintain simple-data-analysis: an easy-to-use JavaScript library for most common data analysis tasks.

Since I am bilingual, I often publish my stories in both English and French. I also do TV and radio hits on CBC/Radio-Canada networks.

I regularly participate to conferences and give talks and trainings. I teach an online data journalism class with Laval University, in Quebec.

I am always interested to connect with new people. Feel free to reach out! :)
