WHEN / HOW YOU STARTED PLAYING  

I started playing for fun, in bars, while I was in college. After college, I moved to Trois-Rivières to continue my studies at the University. It was there in University where I met competitive players. I started playing in the weekly DYPs and after a few months I attended my first Bonzini Major. That’s where everything started. I became totally addicted to this game.

HOW THAT LED TO TOURNAMENT PLAY  

At my first Major tournament, on the bonzini table, I did pretty well. But, as a competitive person, “pretty well” was not enough. So I started practicing more and more to get better results each time. Then, I decided to experiment on another table – Tornado. I literally fell in love with the table. After a few local Tornado tournaments I decided to try the US tour.

WHAT YOU DO OUTSIDE OF FOOSBALL  

I was born in a town called Les Hauteurs, in the eastern part of Quebec. I moved to Rimouski where I did my college studies in analytical chemistry. I went to the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières to continue my studies in chemistry and then moved to Québec city to work as an analytical instruments technician at inVentivHealth Clinical. Outside of foosball I like to run and play sports like soccer, golf, skating. I also enjoy relaxing in front of the TV.
