28 years old ▪ Biologist ▪ Versatile adventure-seeker
Richard has always lived with a passion for nature, music and the great outdoors. Discovering the world, different cultures and people motivate and give him the energy he needs to reach his goals. With a master degree in biology and a complementary master in Sciences and Environmental Management, Richard has left his country numerous times to pursue his dream of traveling the globe. From Asia to the Alps, with stops in Africa, Australia, Iceland, Georgia and the Canadian Rockies, he has travelled over twenty countries, which have led him to learn a great deal about himself, different cultures and the environment. Richard is also a scuba diving instructor, athletics, a photographer as well as amateur filmmaker.
With a high concern for the environment, Richard now focuses on utilizing his experiences and competencies to benefit and protect the environment. His perspective on the “Un coup de Pagaie pour le Saint-Laurent” project is that it will enable him to live, discover and share his adventures with the Saint-Laurence river.
