I'm a native (and proud), well-travelled Montrealer. My first language is French (they call us Francophones), but I am fully bilingual (French-English) and my Spanish and Japanese are pretty good.
I'm a freelance communications professional, and tend to write, draw and paint a lot, and take a lot of pictures.
As a host, I'll make sure you have everything you need and will happily share my love of this wonderful city with you if you're looking for recommendations and tips, or some French catch phrases. I worked as a hotel concierge in a previous life: I know this place really well and feel good when I get to share the love with visitors.
As a guest, I'll walk and bike the streets off your fair city or town, mostly staring at the faces of people so I can remember how to draw them later. I don't talk much (although I tend to compensate with laughing), and I will respect your space and things, especially if they're pretty.
