My name is Jean-François. I am a mechanical engineer currently working at the Canadian Department of National Defence. I'm passionate about sailing and spend a good portion of my free time on my 27' Mirage sailboat during the spring, summer and fall seasons. Snowboarding and cross-country skiing are a couple of winter activities that I like. I'm also a big biker. Essentially, I enjoy just about any outdoor activity.
My wife, Allison, is a finance manager. She loves music and enjoys gardening (although she claims she's not very good at it). She's currently working on her CMA certification so that takes up a lot of her free time right now. She gets seasick so unfortunately she doesn't share my passion for sailing. She does enjoy biking though. We went on a biking wine tour last year in Wolfville (a beautiful spot here in Nova Scotia) and had a great time.
We have two wonderful children. Katie (14 yrs) loves animals and is a talented writer. She also enjoys swimming, skiing, and rock-climbing. She's a pretty good cook too (unlike my wife ;) Our son Nick (10 yrs) plays on the local basketball team and also enjoys swimming, snowboarding, chess, and brain-teasing board games such as Mindtrap. Both of our children are bi-lingual (french & english) and attend the local french schools.
We also have a very big cat named Leo. He's passionate about eating and not much else. He's a good cat though.
