I was born in Montreal, Quebec - June 14, 1959. I have always
a passion for mechanical things, which I eventually turned into my
From 1979 to 1980 I took Mechanical Technology at Dawson
I have worked at several different companies over the years - VKI
Le Groupe Buscom, Paprima Industries, Multimatic Technical Center, and
the latest is GEA ViEX. In these companies I have done
from being a Foreman in change of Drilling, maintenance, and assembly
to Sr. Designer and CAD Manager, Second in charge of Engineering, to a
Mechanical Designer, to CAD Specialist. Various Design
cover sheet metal, injection molded, die casting, machined parts, to
large machinery, pneumatics, etc, etc.
In the late 70's I bought my first car, a 1970 Impala that started the
passion for Drag racing and cars and more cars. A friend -
Piccioni introduced me to the Performance Plus Car Club in Green Field
Park and from their
my passion for drag racing and cars just grew. One of my all
favorite cars to watch on the the drag strip was NHRA C/SM Chevy II's.
Later I bought one which I used to bracket race for 6 years
eventually traded for the 1967 Acadian in 1993.
In 2005 my wife, Gloria and I packed up the bags and sold our house in
Dorval to move north of Toronto to the town of Keswick.
I tried my hand at automotive engineering at the Multimatic
Technical Center, but the beginning of my short career in Automotive
Design was also
the beginning of the melt down of the large automotive sector in
Ontario so I after 2 years I left and found a job as an R&D
Production Technician at GEA ViEX.
I love going to the cruises and car shows around the Toronto area of
which there are
many - almost something to find every night of the week and larger ones
on the Weekend. I also love drag racing still, but am a lousy
spectator at most sports and would rather do, than watch.
In the picture above you can see me at the Jim Russel driving school at
Tremblant, Quebec which my wife Gloria, bought me a one day session for
my birthday - lucky me - what a wonderful wife. Even though I
have always been into drag racing in was a complete blast.
only downside was that day went by too fast.
Anyways, I continue to play with my Acadian and cruise around around
Ontario on sunny days. If you been to my website and
at a cruise night or car show, just stop by and say Hello.
