At work, I particularly love…
Working with people! Exchanging different points of view is very stimulating, especially when it results in a strong consensus.

In our team, I’m the one who…
Is the “old timer” but also the newbie, who first sent his CV to Le Québec maritime 20 years ago. I’m also the one who’s stepping into the shoes of a great woman in the Québec tourism industry, Louise Nadeau.

Outside work, I’m often…
Jogging or cycling over hills and vales.

If I was an animal from the maritime regions of Québec, I’d be…
A wolf, because I like that it’s a pack animal that can defend its pack.

If I was a hashtag, I’d be…
#FreeElectron

I’m also known as…
Luigi because of my name. But also because I appreciate what is good and beautiful in life. La vita è bella, in other words!

One day I’ll visit…
The world… There are so many things to see, and people and cultures to meet! In Québec, I’d like to explore the Lower North Shore and northern Québec.

In my suitcase, you’ll always find…
Good shoes and maps, as if I was worried about getting lost in the GPS era or of never finding my way home when all roads lead to Rome. (Get it?)

One of my favourite parts of the maritime regions of Québec is…
The landscapes, the people, the wide-open spaces on land, in the water and in the air!

There’s not enough space to itemize everything I love, especially since my favourites are often contradictory. But without a doubt, I like to take the time to enjoy quiet moments, when I’m at peace with myself. I also like those moments when I’m having a good time with family or friends and everyone is feeling like there’s nowhere else they’d rather be.

I confess, I really love…
Candy, and in fact anything sweet, whether it’s cold, hot, liquid or solid, in all shapes and colours. I’ll admit I’ve even stolen candy from my kids! (Shame on me!) I love Halloween!

The one food I can’t live without is…
Anything, or almost anything, that comes from the sea, the St. Lawrence, rivers, lakes… In other words, seafood and fish of all kinds are always welcome on my plate!

I’m particularly proud of…
My three children, who are all extraordinary, and my wife, the love of my life. She’s magnificent, strong, happy. xoxo

It can be annoying, but I have a habit of…
Tidying up everywhere I go: at home, at the office, even in other people’s homes!

I don’t want to brag, but I’m rather good at…
Long-distance running, literally as well as figuratively. Others run out of steam long before I give up on anything.

I often say…
Curse words that can’t be published here! 🙂
