Before,beeing a guide I was a sales manager for the 3M company. I always liked to meet people and always like to be witty; it was my favourite part of the job. But in sales I always had strees to sell. Now, as a guide, I get to enjoy meeting people without being stressed with the selling part! I changed my focus from mathematics to history and I am very happy to have done so.As a matter of fact I read a lot about history it is my main subject of reading.

Our Montreal city has a lot to offer. From 80 different ethnic group that each have at least one restarant to old city, downton and an underground city where you can walk for 22 miles without walking at the same place.Montreal is also known for a very low crime rate and me and my family realy enjoy this feature.

I also like to meet people from different part of the world because it gives me tha chance to know more about their part of the world where they are from. Finally I like to add a little humor in my tours .Hope this will be to your satisfaction.
