This month, I want to take some time to introduce you to one of my main collaborators, David Desroches. I have known David since he was three years old. When I first met him, I was struck by how intelligent this young boy was, and he had personality to burn. I got the pleasure of watching him grow up, while working for his uncle’s business and having him as a neighbour. After completing Minors in Linguistics, History and Spanish studies, he completed his Bachelors in Translation at the Université de Montréal. As a proofreader, translator and close colleague, I feel like I have a treasure nearby, as we’re still living on the same street Saint Anne-de-Bellevue. Having and building community is one of my core values, and with David, on my team, it’s a blessing, and it just couldn’t get any better than this.
