Michel Got Game! And a wit as sharp as his abilities. He loves video games, which makes for very animated team lunch chats. He's also an Intellivison fanboy without compare and has some great dance moves. Did we mention he is a great videographer? As comfortable behind the camera as he is in front of it. Not Shy. Not at all.

Does the same thing in his web development skills – always looking for the new – better – harder - faster approach to his project, getting it done is job one!
