Mario

I have been a maple syrup producer every spring for 25 years. All year round, my wife and I make this syrup a by-product that we sell in public markets and festivals. I am now retired, I taught at the CEGEP level for 33 years in electronics. I am very manual, I have a lot of skills. My last project was the construction of a house on the St. Lawrence River in Kamouraska. I lived and worked for three years in Africa more specifically in Cameroon in the early 90s
