This month we are highlighting Julien and getting to know more about what kind of student he was, the last book he read and how he got his nickname!
Q: What has been your favorite project so far?
A: I would have to say our Innovation Lab and our first VR competition to find the new generation of VR artists in Montreal! Both were very exciting to work on.
Q: What would be your ideal working environment?
A: I like the start-up vibe of our office. We have a lot of open space, art pieces and plants everywhere. However, if we were to have the view from Mont Royal mountain (The Montreal Central Park), I would not say no!
Q: What tool or utility helps you do your job more efficiently?
Q: What kind of car do you drive?
A: I’m team metro.
Q: What are you most proudest of?
