Born in Montréal, Canada, I have been living abroad for more than 20 years now. I studied zoology at McGill University and completed my Master degree at the same university in Integrated Pest Management. I am in charge of the University botanical garden and teach beekeeping in Costa Rica, where I keep different species of bees. I make my own soaps, creams, deodorant and other products from the harvest of the hive.
