With a genuine passion for robotics, I graduated from Computer Engineering in 2013 and have considerable interest for robotics. It is a well balance mix of mechanical, electrical and software engineering. I have a passion for learning and teaching the knowledge acquired. Through my involvement in the Maker Community, I founded Helios Makerspace to democratize access to tools for entrepreneurs, students, families, hobbyists... pretty much opened to all. In that journey, I became fascinated by team dynamics and team building. There is a great deal of satisfaction from uniting a group towards a common objective.
Currently, I work at Wowwee Canada as a Robotic Engineer in the toy industry. I build robot dogs, cats, monkeys, dragon robots. This became more than building an utilitarian piece of machinery. My creation needs to bring entertainment and joy to users of all ages. It's definitely an interesting challenge.
My overarching goal is to build healthy teams and organizations which will have a positive impact to the community.
I made it my priority to solve a problem in my local community: the lack of space and access to tools for projects. Thus, I have been working on pooling the ressources into local workshops to better serve the community.
