Explain your job at Amilia.

I am an intern with the marketing team. I'm mainly involved with social media and I help my team with related tasks. 

If you were an animal, which one would you be?

If I were an animal, I would be a dog, because I love meeting new people and creating rapports with each of them. In addition, I'm a curious person, always in search of knowledge and adventures.

What is your favorite series of the moment?Francois-Desautels-round.jpg

There are too many good ones to choose from! I would say Black Mirror for the moment, because it’s a series that broadcasts several futuristic programs that are very different from each other. As a result, I never get tired of listening to a new story.

Choose: cat or dog ?

I choose the dog! I guess it's obvious, based on my earlier answer, but the dogs are so kind. They are always playful and know how to give a lot of love.

What do you think is the most useful mobile application?

Linkedin. With this application, we can foster many business relationships and get your career off to a great start.

What’s your favorite thing about working at Amilia?

I like the fact that there are several organized sports events you can participate in through the company that allow you to decompress and have fun. The team seems very dynamic and friendly, so I think that I will have a lot of fun with my colleagues!

What is your dream travel destination?

My dream destination would be New Zealand! The landscapes are breathtaking and the horizon, crowded with greenery, is incredible. I am a guy who likes the outdoors and nature, so this trip would be indescribable.

Three words that define you:

Enthusiasm, creative and selfless.

Nutella or peanut butter?

Nutella! Both together are even better.

What is your favorite ice cream flavor?

Stracciatella (yes, I do have fancy tastes). It’s a variety of gelato, consisting of milk-based ice cream filled with fine, irregular chips of chocolate

 Do you enjoy the Montreal winters?

Yes, a lot! I ski and skate each weekend! I find that the snow enhances our landscapes here in Quebec. However, I hate the cold, but sometimes compromise is necessary. 😉
