Since a young age, I've been fascinated with design and engineering. My passion is aviation, and I grew up designing all kinds of gadgets and tinkering with electronics and other do-it-yourself projects... Naturally, I pursued my studies in Mechanical Engineering with the Aerospace Option from McGill University in Montreal, Canada. I have an insatiable appetite for knowledge, so I haven't stopped learning...
The early part of my career was spent designing and engineering flight simulators. I then started consulting in industrial design and engineering for all types of aerospace projects and consumer products. I eventually opened my own consulting firm, HyeProfile Inc.
I currently work in airworthiness engineering management for a large transport category jet aircraft manufacturer, Bombardier, and I do part-time consulting on the side, to keep myself busy.
Here's what my clients say sets me apart from the competition:

HOBBIES AND SPORTS
I lead an active lifestyle and immerse myself deeply into everything that I do. Here are some of my favourite hobbies and sports:
Travelling. The world is such a wonderful place. Much prettier than my basement...
Soccer (playing since I was 6, nowadays coaching and helping Technical Directors of various teams set up soccer programs that meet and exceed Soccer Canada and Fédération du Soccer du Québec requirements)
Mountain biking, motorcycling, and ATVing (and riding anything else on wheels, for that matter...)
Hiking, camping, hunting, canoeing, outdooring, and bushcraft
Mountain and wall climbing
Aviation. It's not just work for me, it's a passion...
Radio-controlled airplanes, helicopters, drones, cars, and boats. I have a Transport Canada pilot license for Advanced Operations.
Amateur radio. I have a Certificate of Proficiency in Amateur Radio issued by Industry Canada. I'm a geek, I know...
Photography & Astrophotography
