In computer science for almost 4 decades, proud to be married to breathtaking Chérie-O of cherie-o-secrets I started my career as a computer programmer and hardware specialist, prior having had exciting years in WEB development.
There I was involved in setting up dynamic WEB solutions and on-line services for a US-Canadian join venture where I acted as a senior developer and UX advisor, deploying internet-based travel aggregator platforms and distribution systems for complex travel planning built around the Galileo booking structure, to challenge conventions by also providing partners with unconventional – but always truly ethical – Internet visibility and social network solutions as an IT Marketing specialist and coordinator..
Full stack dev in the 2000s, passionate by OS migration, GNU / Linux Debian (Mint and Zorin OS which both rely on UBUNTU), Linux RPM (FEDORA), Mac OS X and WINDOWS operating systems are my daily playground. Entrepreneurial in nature, I have been working as an IT Recruiter for a pancanadian company. I also support a very active network of OpenSource-oriented enthusiasts.
Today I mainly act as a Change Management advisor, OpenSource cloud solutions fanatic, and M365 trainer.
